‘The Root Cause’ – Children’s Health Program
Primary classes were treated to a visit from ‘The Mad Food Scientist’ (AKA- Victoria) who spent some time with each class educating us about the importance of nutrition and ‘whole foods’ as opposed to ‘processed foods’.
Some important take-aways from the educational program are that children should aim to have only 4 teaspoons of sugar each day, and also that the more ingredients that are listed on the back of packaged food, the further away from a natural food choice the item is. Students even got to taste a delicious green smoothie!
The sessions were definitely ‘food for thought’. Click on the link for more information Empowering Children to Make Better Food Choices – The Root Cause
This was a whole school community program, and parents have been given free 13 months membership to a wide variety of resources. Drop into the office to get a copy of the flyer if you didn’t receive yours.
