A-Z fruit & veg challenge

Last month we tried the A-Z challenge, in an attempt to boost my children’s fruit and veg intake.

That’s right – we had a contest to see who could eat the most letters of the healthy alphabet.

Food shouldn’t be a competitive sport, but with kids it can be helpful!

As a family of four, here’s what we ate during January:

Apples

Broccoli, Brussels sprouts, blueberries

Carrots, cauliflower, corn, celery

Edamame

Green beans, garlic, grapes

Kiwis

Leeks

Mangoes, melons, mushrooms,

Oranges, onions

Pears, pomegranates, pineapple, parsnips, peas, potatoes

Raspberries

Seaweed, strawberries, spinach, sweet potato

Tomatoes

Zucchini

Yes, we had a few gaps (D, F, H, I, J, N, Q, U, V, W, X, Y) but we managed to eat 32 different fruits and vegetables which is pretty great!

Oh, and we’re a British-American family so, yes, zucchini counts!

It was fun to do as a family, and it really did motivate the kids to try different foods.

We’ll definitely do this again!
