Food is an important and enjoyable part of healthy living. This year we are working in partnership with Birmingham Community Healthcare’s Foodnet programme. Our aim is to increase knowledge of healthier eating and build the confidence of our children and families to convert knowledge into practical actions for a healthier lifestyle.
Cooking With Your Kids
We have now run two very successful project working with families from Years 3 to 6 who came into school for five sessions to cook nutritional (and cost effective!) meals with their children. This included squash soup, wraps and fruit smoothies. A lot of fun was had by all! We are hoping to run more of these sessions during summer term.
Many parents have asked for the recipes to try at home – click here for all of the Foodnet recipes.
Year 3 children and their parents were lucky enough with our nutritionist to understand the different food groups and what the body needs to grow strong and healthy. This included a drinks swap challenge, looking at how to read food labels and what food marketing tricks can really mean!
We published the findings of our lunchbox audit for all of the parents and will be using this to develop a whole school policy over the coming term.
We look forward to working closely with as many of our families as possible over this exciting project and welcome families’ input and questions.
