Our school is participating in the Food Dudes Healthy Eating Programme, which aims to encourage children to eat more fruit and vegetables. Health experts recommend that children (and adults) eat 5 - 7 portions of fruit and vegetables each day.
The aim of the programme is to encourage children to try fruit and vegetables and come to enjoy the taste of the foods and to see themselves as healthy eaters who enjoy fruit and vegetables. Infants - 2nd class will participate in the programme for 16 days and 3rd-6th will participate for 8 days. You may wish to adjust the amount of food in your child’s lunchbox to accommodate these additional foods.
After phase 1, Children will then be encouraged to bring in and eat fruit and vegetables from home as part of their daily diet and will be rewarded with certificates of achievements. We hope this programme will result in health benefits for all who participate.
