Innocent Five A Day Giveaway! #InnocentFiveADay (Competition now closed)

Last week we were invited along to Innocent’s Fruit Towers to have a day of fun and find out about their new Fruit and Veg Smoothies for Kids.

We had a really great day where LP and Little Man found out all about fruit and veg whilst playing so many fun games, making their own smoothies and even painting using fruit and vegetables instead of paint brushes – they had a blast!

Innocent‘s new Fruit and Veg Smoothies are a great natural way to get a portion of fruit and veg into your children as each smoothie contains one of their 5-a-day and there’s a wide variety of ingredients such as beetroot, carrots, apples and pumpkin which make them a great way to enjoy lots of different fruits and veg.

LP and Little Man loved the new smoothies and they would be perfect for lunchboxes. The smoothies come in two flavours:

  • Pineapples, Apples and Carrots
  • Strawberries, Apples and Beetroot

We’ve been really lucky that LP and Little Man eat fruit and veg all the time – both as part of a meal and as snacks. There are definite favourites and others that they’re not so keen on but we have never really worried about them getting their 5-a-day. If we were, the smoothies would be a great way of topping up the fruit and veg in their diet.

To celebrate the start of a new school term I have teamed up with Innocent to give away a class full of innocent fruit & veg smoothies to one lucky reader! Innocent will deliver them to your home or child’s school ready for their class to enjoy. If you would like a chance to win just complete one or more entries on the Rafflecopter below. Good luck!

    Get them into good habits young

    I think if they have always eaten them and see you eat them, then they are less likely to be fussy about fruit and veg.

  13. Andy Kadir-Buxton

    Keep trying until eating the right amount becomes second nature.

    I feed them either veg that is sweet tasting (like carrots), or veg that doesn’t taste very strong (like cucumber).

    Let the help prepare them – even grow their own. My children have always been super keen to eat anything they’ve ‘created’ themselves.

    I really think that if they see you eating a variety of fruits and veggies they will too.

    If they are vegaphobes (is that a word?!?!), like my son was, I used to grate vegs up into food. For example, carrots into spaghetti Bolognese. Worked a treat!

  26. Tracy Gladman

    I’ve never had a problem getting mine to eat fruit, but veg was a bit harder but I’ve found adding a bit of maple syrup to mashed sweet potatoes made it a favorite for both of them.

  28. September 8, 2015 / 9:09 pm

    The probably I have is Noah will just eat too much! He loves fruit and veg pretty much more than anything else – strange boy!

  29. Janice Mackin

    Make soups and smoothies. It’s a good way to get them to eat fruit and veg they wouldn’t normally eat. One of my son’s doesn’t like berries on their own but loves them in a smoothie. All of my children will eat just about any veg when it’s blended into soup!

    Don’t make a big deal out of them not eat thing but instead keep try in made different ways

    Always let them have the F&V that they like, even if it seems they are having the same thing all the time, at least you know they are having some!!

    I always slice up some fruit and veg for when my children get back from school, instead of biscuits.

    I use flight trays at lunch time so I can put lots of different types of fruit and vegetables for the children to try – rainbow plates make for a lovely looking and tasting lunch!

    If my son has icecream we make it with fresh fruit in the ice cream maker, if he has pizzas we do funny faces as topping using various vegetables and he likes to make his own soup and cut it all up (usually his fingers too!).

  41. julie kenny

    I cut up lots of fruit and put in on the table when they are watching tv – it soon disappears x

    I have no problem gettin gmy son to eat enough fruit, but with veg I add veg to meals such as carrots & courgettes in Spaghetti Bolognese.

  43. Lauren Old
    September 18, 2015 / 4:41 pm

    Use coloured trays that divide up the veg so it doesn’t look so daunting, and give them some kind of treat if they eat it all

  44. Vikki Sanderson
    September 18, 2015 / 7:14 pm

    start them at weaning age, don’t make a big fuss over something they don’t like, just try again later. When they get older, just put the veg they like on their plate and if they eat it great, if not – no pudding. For getting them to try new stuff…let them see you eating it!

  45. Laura Nice

    I started them young and I don’t really have any problem getting them to eat veg or fruit. They love fruit more, but I just cut it into small chunks and it’s gone

    My son likes to help pick and pull up the veg in the garden – he is more keen to eat what he has collected.

  54. Maxine G

    Involve kids in growing veggies in the garden – they get excited when the vegetables are ripe and then want to eat them

  55. Karen R
    September 20, 2015 / 9:36 am

    We have always included vegetables in meals and expected the children to eat them. We also have a “fruit break”, instead of “snack time” in the mornings, so the question is “what fruit do you want?”, not “what snack do you want?”

  56. Victoria Dixon
    September 20, 2015 / 10:45 am

    Hide it in their favourite foods, make home made soups and make fruit eating fun!

    Hide veg. I puree or blend veg and add to soups, stews and casseroles so they can’t pick out what they think they don’t like.

  64. September 20, 2015 / 11:06 pm

    Make it fun though to be honest we are lucky my niece loves fruit and veg.
