Getting children to eat fruit and vegetables can be a challenge for many parents but the Crunch & Sip program is there to help.

The primary school program has a range of in-language resources to help parents follow Crunch & Sip at home. The program sets a time each day for children to refuel by eating fruit and vegetables and stay hydrated by drinking water. 

The resources are available in Arabic, Chinese Simplified, Macedonian and English. 

Other Crunch & Sip tips for parents include:

  • Send your child to school with a water bottle and ready to eat fruit and vegetables.
  • Find time on weekends and school holidays to Crunch & Sip.
  • Be a role model to your children.
  • Get the kids involved in shopping, cooking and growing food.
  • Try adding vegetables to all meals.
  • Keep fruit and vegetables in a fruit bowl on the kitchen counter.
