yep, I do, I should do tho cause I am a veggie! It is expensive tho, no doubt about that - you don't get as many offers on the healthy stuff as you do the packets of biscuits etc etc - for example I went shopping the other day and got a multi-pack of hula hoops for the kids pack up, 18pk for £2, yet bought two mangoes for a £1 each, you couldn't make 2 mangoes feed 18 people could you!! IT's wrong really, esp. as everyone preaches about eating healthy you'd think the shops would make it easier too! (rant over lol)

Have you got a Lidl or Aldi near you. i picked up a bag of apples and a bag of oranges for 84p for the two. Sainsbury's are doing bags of carrots for 30p Kiwis for 49p for 6. Iceland frozen fruit and veg are cheap too xx

I only usually have one portion of fruit a day, and sometimes none. But I have piles and piles of veg everyday, I would often have tomatoes or mushrooms on toast for brekkie, a large salad for lunch, and have 2 or 3 different portions of veg with my dinner. I often have tomatoes on toast again later in the eve. Mind you, technically tomato is a fruit, isn't it lol!

I think it might be because tomatoes are generally not as high in sugar as fruit is.

I dont manage 5 a day.. well very rarely do i.. I probably do about 2-3 a day.
I'm quite lucky though as my kids really like fruit and veg, they plenty though.

good way to get kids to eat fruit is get lots of different fruits and make fruity kebabs and they chose what goes on the kebab etc apparently makes it fun for them, or making smiley faces on the plates etc

Yep ive done that before too.

My kids love to dip bite sized bits of strawberrys and grapes into petit filous.

My 18 month old has an obsession with [STRIKE]peas[/STRIKE] "balls" lol. He will quite happily sit there polishing off a bowl full.

I make jelly and add the fruits too. The marks and spencers one with the raspberries in is delicious! mmmm
