School Fruit and Vegetable Scheme
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.

If your child is aged four to six and attends a fully state-funded infant, primary or special school in England, they are entitled to receive a free piece of fruit or vegetable each school day.

That provides one 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.

Apart from the SFVS, your child has other opportunities through the school day to add to their 5 A DAY total.

Lunches provided by school must include at least one portion of fruit and one portion of vegetables or salad for each pupil, every school day.

We also give each child in Reception Class through to Year 2 a drink of semi skimmed milk every morning!
