Healthy Lunch: Alternative to Sweets

Fruit salad makes a great dessert.  You can make an exotic version with blueberries, raspberries and grapes, or a more traditional version with apples, bananas, grapes and oranges.  This will count toward your child’s five a day portions of fruit and veg.

  • Try adding a handful of dried fruit
  • Instead of cakes, chocolates and biscuits; try scones, currant buns or fruit bread.
  • Make sure that your child gets enough calcium by adding cheese strings, cheese portions, a yoghurt or rice pudding, choosing low fat versions.
