Child nutrition - do you take advantage of the free fruit for kids scheme?

Do you take advantage of the free fruit for kids scheme?

Although shopping for food with tots' in toe may seem like a stressful struggle (particularly if they're prone to public tears and tantrums!), supermarkets provide the perfect opportunity to increase an infant's exposure to 'feared' and unfamiliar foods in an environment where they won't feel pressured to try them. 
If your youngster is fussy about fruit, positively pointing out the free fruit for kids scheme whilst encouraging (not pressuring!) them to take a look, touch and/or choose a different source to try each time that you take a trip to the shops is a fantastic way to ignite an interest in a food that's more feared, than favoured - it's also great for keeping them occupied whilst you grab your groceries!
