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.
