New research has revealed almost a third of parents surveyed have at some point given up trying to feed their children vegetables

Get veg on kids' plates

As part of this year’s Eat Better Feel Better drive, kids are being challenged to try a new vegetable every day for five days – and frustrated parents will be signposted to recipes and ideas to help make it happen.

The message we want to get across today is that by making small changes to how you shop, cook and eat, you and your family can eat better and ultimately feel better.
