Healthy snacking resources for primary schools to be launched
EB News: 05/01/2018 - 12:28
Change4Life will be launching a suite of new resources for primary schools in order to inform pupils and families about healthier snacking choices.
Available from Monday, 8 January, the resources will include a new School Council Toolkit to help pupils champion healthier snacking and share knowledge. Also included is The Healthier Snacking Show, a curriculum-linked game show presentation that can be delivered in either a classroom setting or performed as a whole-school assembly.
To help schools send the message home, 3.6 million Family Snack Challenge leaflets are being distributed to more than 16,500 primary schools via the School Fruit and Veg Scheme.
The campaign is supported by research that underlines the importance of educating young people to identify healthier snacks, interpret food labels and understand the effect of high sugar content.
