Child Trust Fund investments

Apologies if this is a FAQ, but a quick Google doesn't throw up any recent posts that I can find!
We will shortly be receiving the voucher from the government to use as
the basis for a Child Trust Fund account for our newborn. What are people's recommendations for good investments for the money? I'm not particularly risk-averse, and would prefer something with a higher potential return rather than going for the most secure (although my wife will no doubt slap me if I head off into too speculative an arena), and obviously we want to avoid investments with excessive fees or other costs.
Any suggestions?

Have a look at:

for a few ideas.

My Father looked into this on my behalf and he came up with F&C as suggested by another poster.
We invested in Graphite Enterprises and the returns so far are as follows
Balance at 1/6/05 273.65 Balance at 31/5/06 355.34 Increase 81.69
Hope this helps
