Fruit and Vegetables in School

If your child is aged 4 to 6 and attends a fully state-funded infant, primary or special school in England, they're entitled to receive a free piece of fruit or vegetable each school day.

 

That provides 1 of their 5 A Day portions, and the scheme also helps to increase awareness of the importance of eating fruit and vegetables, encouraging healthy eating habits that can be carried into later life.

 

Teachers find that distributing the fruit in class groups helps to encourage a sharing, calm, social time.

It also allows them to incorporate the scheme into teaching and learning.
