Our expert says:
As I just advised another Mom, children older than 2 years can start using low-fat milk instead of full-cream to reduce their intake of saturated fat. I think you should start giving your son some fruit at breakfast, for school and at lunch. The idea is for all of us to have 5-A-day portions of fruit or vegetables or both. If your son is not yet fond of vegies, then let him eat fruit instead (fresh or dried). Try this and get him used to having 5 portions of fruit a day. Then introduce him to other vegies one at a time. If he refuses a specific vegie, don't comment, just wait till later and then introduce it again. It takes a long time for some people to develop a taste and linking for vegetables and there are many adults who also don't like eating vegies. These things take time. Otherwise do try and reduce your son's fat intake (the viennas, cold meat, chips and fritters are all high-fat foods).
