About Kids & Fruit

Over 15,000 young Australian's are building better health choices….
by participating on the Kids & Fruit program.

Numbers are increasing weekly……
Our modern diets are including more high-fat, sugary foods and less fresh, whole food such as fruit and vegetables. Current research has shown these poor eating habits are usually developed during childhood and carried forward into adulthood, too often resulting in people developing obesity-related diseases such as Type 2 diabetes and some forms of cancer.

Kids & Fruit's Mission

Kids & Fruit is a non profit charitable organisation, supported by Fruit Growers Victoria and Go for 2 and 5, which works with schools and their communities, sport associations and other educational organisations in building better healthy choices for young people throughout Australia.
