This fruit and vegetable activity pack will teach preschoolers about healthy eating. It’s useful for opening up a discussion about making better eating choices and how some junk foods can be prepared in a more healthy way. It will also expose them to fruits and vegetables that they may not have tried before and help with reducing picky eating.

Start it up
The first game is a shadow matching game to develop visual discrimination. There isn’t really any prep work involved with this worksheet. Just cut out either the food pictures or shadow pictures and let your child have a go.
The second game will help with identifying beginning sounds. You could either cut them up as individual clip cards or just have your child mark the correct letter. Mr. R and I prefer using clothespins or paper clips as it adds a fine motor component to the game.
The third game is fruit and vegetable BINGO. I have included a few variations of the game that you could try. It comes with 2 different BINGO cards so you could use this game if you have more than one child. It also has the BINGO call sheet included.
The next game is a fruit and vegetable sorting game. Again, very simple to prepare – just cut out the pictures and ask the child to sort them into the correct column.
I sat down with Mr. R while he was doing this activity to make sure he could identify all the pictures. He managed this worksheet quite easily even though he tried to sneak French fries into the vegetable column as potatoes. Cheeky boy!
Finally, there is a fruit and vegetable I Spy activity. There are 5 activities in the whole pack.
It so happened that they were learning about healthy food that week at preschool when I did these games with Mr. R so he could tell me why certain foods weren’t good for him, which was amazing!
I always try to get my son to eat as many fruits and vegetables as possible. Admittedly, this was much easier when he was younger and didn’t have much input as to what he wanted to eat, but we are still doing a great job of this.
