Healthy Eating Topic Day
On Tuesday 19th February 2019 we held a whole school healthy eating day, supported by Tesco and the Healthy Child Team. The children looked at two different lunchbox options and talked about the sugar contained in each. The first lunchbox contained a whopping 55g of sugar, more than three times the recommended allowance for primary age children. Classes then looked at healthier alternative options to higher sugar items. There was a lot of talk about hidden sugar in food- the children, staff and parents were all shocked by just how much sugar is in the items that are branded as ‘healthier’ choices such as cereal bars. You can download a great Change 4 Life App that has a bar code scanning tool, telling you how many cubes of sugar are in an item before you buy. Thank you so much to all of the parents who came in, joined in and helped out.
