School Fruit & Vegetable Scheme

The School Fruit and Vegetable Scheme (SFVS) helps your child achieve 5 A Day.

Fruit and vegetables are a good source of the nutrients that children need and form part of a healthy, balanced diet.

It's recommended that children – like adults – eat at least 5 portions of fruit and vegetables every day.

But research shows that on average children in England only eat about 3 portions, with many eating fewer.

For handy tips on how to get more fruit and veg into your children's diet, read 5 A Day and your family.

If your child is aged 4 to 6, you can talk to their teacher to see if they're currently receiving a free piece of fruit or vegetable each day.
