Food Dudes

We are currently taking part in the Food Dudes Healthy Eating Programme which aims to encourage children to eat more fruit and vegetables. Health experts recommend that children eat at least 5 portions of fruit and vegetables each day, however many are currently eating less than this.
For 16 consecutive schools days, the children receive free fruit and vegetables in school and are rewarded with stickers and small rewards for eating these foods. At the end of the 16 days, the children will then be encouraged to bring in their own fruit and vegetables from home and will be rewarded with certificates of achievements if they eat these foods.
The aim of the programme is to encourage children to repeatedly try fruit and vegetables so that they can learn to like them.
For more information on the programme and healthy eating ideas, visit the website
