We are participating in the Food Dudes Healthy Eating Programme this week. Daily portions of fruit and vegetables are delivered for all classes daily. The programme is managed in Ireland by Bord Bia and receives financial support from the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine and the European Union through the School Fruit and Vegetables Scheme.
It works by changing children’s attitudes towards healthy eating, allowing them to cultivate a liking for fresh fruit and vegetables At the end the intervention, the children will be encouraged to bring in and eat fruit and vegetables from home as part of their daily diet.
The children have been given a Passport to Healthy Eating. to promote healthy eating. This passport contains a number of fun activities and is designed to be completed with you at home during the course of the Food Dudes week. The completion of the passport will enhance the healthy eating ethos in school and at home.
