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.
All Children in KS1 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.
Depending on the season, there’s a choice of:
- easy-peel citrus fruits, such as satsumas
All the fruit and vegetables are washed before they’re handed out, which is usually just before the mid-morning break, normally in individual class groups.
