Crunch on vegetables

Most WA school kids meet the recommended intake for fruit, but only 1 in 6 eat enough vegetables.

Students mainly bring fruit for Crunch&Sip, so there is a big opportunity to increase vegetable intake by kids choosing vegetables more often for Crunch&Sip.

Why promote veg for Crunch&Sip?

  • Health – Eating plenty of veg supports growth and development and reduces the risk of developing chronic diseases like type 2 diabetes, heart disease and some cancers.
  • Less mess – While biting into juicy fruit can lead to sticky fingers and desks, cut up or whole vegetables tend to be less messy.
  • Cost – A serve of carrots or celery sticks costs no more than 30 cents.

Letting parents and students know about the change to a veg focus for Crunch&Sip

  • Download and distribute a parent letter, fact sheet or put an insert in the school newsletter.
  • Participate in Crunch&Sip events such as March Munch (Term 1), The Great Vegie Crunch (Term 3) or create your own event from one of our promotion ideas.
  • Download and use the new Crunch&Sip Operation: Vegetable curriculum resources.
  • Be a champion teacher. Teacher’s food opinions and choices can have a big influence on children's eating attitudes and behaviours. Eating vegetables yourself during the Crunch&Sip break, being enthusiastic about vegetables, and encouraging students who bring vegetables in for Crunch&Sip can go a long way. When asked about strategies to promote vegetables in the classroom, teachers have told us: 

‘I was modelling – I was having vegetables. So then the kids would go home and go, “Can I have celery sticks because Mrs XXXX has celery sticks and she says they’re really yummy”. Then one kid brings it in and the others go, “Oh, I might do that too.”

‘I’ve modelled eating a carrot in front of them on purpose, so you can do it. You don’t need it all cut up.’

‘Mine didn’t realise you could have something like cucumber and just munch away on it whole. Like they’d only had it in salads, and it was after I brought one in for my C&S, and they were like “Whoa!”, and they brought cucumber in the next day.’
