What our experts think
Role play with fruit and vegetables promotes discussion around healthy eating and nutrition. Children who know the names of the fruits and vegetables are more likely to want to taste them.
This toy works well when combined with other role play activities such as shops or cafes and children can be encouraged to make their own games with the pieces of fruit or veg.
