Easy ways to eat 5-a-day

Weekend Treats

  • Freeze ripe bananas and blitz for silky smooth banana ice-cream. Add a little peanut butter or trickle of honey for extra texture and flavour.
  • Tropical fruit kebabs will get kids eating their 5 a day. Just spear tinned pineapple chunks, fresh grapes or seasonal fruit onto skewers.
  • For quick-fix, healthier treats when the whole family is on the move, pack yogurt tubes or basics oat and raisin cereal bars.  

 

How to snack healthier

Cut back on salt

More than 75% of the salt we consume comes from processed foods. Choose sandwich fillings with less salt, such as chicken or tuna, and replace salty crisps with reduced-salt snacks.
