Food Dudes is a programme designed to encourage children to eat more fruit and vegetables both in school and at home.
This programme is commencing with the junior classes on Thursday 26th February. Junior & Senior Infants and first & second class will receive one portion of a different fruit and one portion of a different vegetable every day for 16 days 926th February to 23rd March. If the children taste each of these they will receive a reward. After the 16 days, children are encouraged to continue to eat fruit and vegetables for their breaks & lunch. If they do so they will receive a certificate after a certain amount of days. We hope this programme will be effective in helping children make healthy choices.
3rd – 6th class are also taking part in Food Dudes. They are encouraged to eat more fruit and vegetables as past of their daily diet and will also have “fruit & vegetable tasting days” on the 5th, 10th, 13th & 20th of March.
