·        Facilitated workshops with teachers to look at the whole school approach and improve the nutrition offer within the school

·        Presentations to parents on the key messages and importance of a balance diet including myth busting and Q&A

·        Nutritionist support at sports day/fun run events

·        Tailored teaching sessions for pupils

·        School assemblies.

Feedback from a head teacher:

Since your healthy eating workshops, the staff focus on health has grown measurably, with positive conversations resulting in the staffroom, corridors and classrooms. As a result, all the staff who attended have taken with them a renewed sense of care in their diets, and in their wellbeing as a whole…the sessions were really well planned and delivered and their impact will last well beyond this year, so thanks so much from all of us.’

 Feedback from a reception teacher:

‘… the children spoke about it all afternoon and we sent each of them home with a copy of the food wheel which excited them further! They all loved it!’
