Playing with our food is often frowned upon but it is actually a great way to allow children use their imagination to explore unfamiliar foods, such as fruit and vegetables, in a non pressured environment. Allowing children to engage more intimately with their food can create positive experiences to help maintain a healthy and balanced diet.

In the UK, today nearly a third of children aged 2 to 15 are overweight or obese [1]. Children aged 4 to 10 years should have no more than the equivalent of 5 to 6 cubes of sugar each day, but are consuming on average 13 cubes. This means they are on track to consume around 4,800 cubes of sugar by the end of the year, more than double the maximum recommendation [2]. Food and nutrition play a huge role in not only our physical, but our brain health too. Food IS medicine!
