Eating five different sorts of fruit and/or vegetables each day can be a little tricky for some parent and carers to administer but here is an idea to get the children enthusiastic about eating their five-a-day.

Slice some raw fruit and vegetables and place them in piles. Ask what colour each piece is and see if your child can name each type? Give them some help and keep practicing through the session to see if they can master the colours and names by the time they have finished.

Show them the plates and ask them to use the fruit and vegetables to make a funny face!


  • Hair: orange grated carrot
  • Nose: cherry tomatoes
  • Eyes: kiwis or halved grapes on slices of banana
  • Mouth: red pepper or sliced red apples
  • Ears: Olives or slices of green peppers

When you have made the faces, eat it all up! Tasty!
