The Food Dudes to the rescue!

Katy Tapper, Pauline J. Horne and C. Fergus Lowe describe an innovative scheme to get children to eat their fruit and veg.

CHILDREN don’t like fresh fruit and vegetables. Visit any primary school canteen and you will probably see them tucking into chips, sausages, baked beans and sponge pudding. The school cook will tell you that they turn their noses up at peas and broccoli and always ignore the few lonely looking apples and oranges. The aversion of some children is so great that they will even cry if anything green touches their chips or chicken nuggets.
