We aim to tackle the growing issue of poor nutrition and obesity amongst children as well as enabling children to make informed choices to improve their physical and emotional needs.
We all know how important it is to keep our bodies in great condition, but do we know which foods we need to include more of and which foods to avoid?
Find out more about how you can make healthier choices by drinking 6-8 glasses of water day and looking closely at the labels on food packaging.
Roots to Food
The Upper School took part in Curriculum Cooking Challenge which started with an introduction and questions/answer session on health, well-being and nutrition, mainly focusing on the Eat Well Guide.
Different cooking techniques were looked at, and the importance of breakfast, and a healthy school meal discussed. Ingredients were split into their food groups and a dish chosen for each team to produce a healthy balanced meal focusing on flavours, textures, techniques, colour and presentation. The teams menus, completed as part of the challenge, are shown below as you may like to try them at home!
The Lower School also enjoyed participating in a Fitness and Food Workshop.
