You can put vegetables on the dinner table, but you can also serve them as a snack or with lunch. A few examples: cucumber and lettuce on a sandwich, or tomato and bell pepper on a toastie. Cucumber, cherry tomatoes and carrots are also tasty snacks. Fruit is also tasty with breakfast, lunch or dinner, for example slices of banana or baked apple on a sandwich.

I find it important that my children eat enough vegetables. But they need to eat quite a lot in a day! They don’t eat that many vegetables at dinner. So now I also give them vegetables at other times. I put some cucumber slices on sandwiches, for example. It’s healthy and it looks good too! In the late afternoon I also serve a little bowl of bell peppers and cherry tomatoes. This makes it a lot easier for my children to eat their portion of vegetables every day.
So always cut grapes and cherry tomatoes in half lengthwise, as shown in this photo.
