We started our Food Dudes Programme in school today.
The aim of the programme is to enable children to enjoy eating healthy diets, and to create a healthy eating culture within schools. It encourages children to eat more fruit and vegetables both in school and at home.
Each day for 16 school days the pupils will have a tasting session. They will be encouraged to try a piece of fruit and a piece of vegetable every day. Today each child was given a little bag of raisins and a little bag of carrot sticks. Most enjoyed their fruit and vegetables and asked for more, few weren’t so keen but tasted them anyway. All the pupils received a reward for eating some fruit and vegetables.
