At Piccolo Fresh Fruit & Vegetable Wholesalers, we acknowledge the significance of providing healthy food options within our education systems, helping to teach young children and students the importance of eating fresh fruit and vegies on a daily basis.
How many fruit and vegetables do children need to eat? The below chart indicates the recommended daily Fruit and Vegetable intake for children and adolescents at various ages.

We pride ourselves on servicing Child Care Centres, Kindergartens and Schools within Melbourne and surrounds, providing the freshest in season and locally grown fruit and vegies to our little leaders of tomorrow.
We also support Victorian Government Initiatives such as Free Fruit Friday, allowing government primary schools to apply for grants to receive free fruit and vegetables.
