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?

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
