Hi sofiasar, if you incorporate the strawberry or grape as a smoothy, or into a salad then you can disguise the fruit within a blend of other fruit & vegetables. With grapes I usually cut them into smaller pieces & balance a colourful salad mix with it. I find that if you encourage the child to participate in a little of the cooking then that helps too. So if you make strawberry jam tarts or trifles with grapes in the jelly. If the child feels that they have prepared something & with positive words of encouragement they will learn to respect the fruit & eat it. I hope that helps?

You can gradually introduce any basic fruits into a child's diet by gradually adding smaller portions into the main meal times. As long as you allow the child to participate & be open with them too. Add words of encouragement too...so perhaps a little nutritional advice. I tell my boys that bananas have potassium to help your muscles grow...which they do because potassium helps the body regulate/retain water in the body, which then ultimately keeps the muscles replenished. Apples can be juiced or diced into a salad...as long as you use a bit of lemon with them to stop discolouration. Use clementines & satsumas instead of oranges to start with I find these are not so acidic for children...you can make basic treats with these, juices or smoothies.

Usually if children see an adult they aspire to/look up to that eat fruit or vegetables then this also encourages them to eat them too.

As for this wall chart you can encourage a child to eat a particular fruit that is associated with a colour. For example if your child eats a banana on a particular day then they earn a yellow star. Great idea for children between 3 - 5 years old. Different coloured star stickers are equally as good.

Indeed. A excellent idea. Thank you dalmore12. Thank you.

Thanks will give this a try.

My daughter will eat and try anything.
My son won't eat anything, even the bland things. He knows if i sneak anything in there and will heave or throw up when a tiny amount touches his tongue. As he is 5 i just get told he will grow out of it which is frustrating to say the least.

Hi babyxxxxx, have you tried to bring a friend of your son's to dinner at your house that eats fruit & vegetables? Usually a friend can encourage each other....then your son will eat his fruit & vegetables if he sees his friend eating it?

I have tried this it doesn't work for us, last time we were making pizza's with his friend and he did try a tiny amount of tomato but threw up everywhere.
There isn't any fruit or veg he will eat, he does have a slight issue with different textures but he is getting over this.

It may take time. As he gets older his palate will become more adventurous. He'll be fine
