Schools and colleges
In addition to the support we offer parents with nutrition and meal ideas to ensure children grow fit, strong and bursting with health, we also design and run a number of programmes in different types of educational environments.
Many schools and colleges include healthy eating as part of their curriculum or pastoral care responsibilities. Here at Positive Nutrition we work with the organisers to design and run events to raise awareness of the value of choosing good food to boost brainpower, increase energy and fitness levels and strengthen the immune system.
Our events can include:
- Hands-on healthy cookery demonstrations
- Interactive classroom-based talks, appropriate for the age groups involved
- Healthy eating presentations to parents and / or teachers
If your school or college is looking for a new or different way to raise awareness of the value of choosing good foods to eat, and giving fun, interesting and practical advice to pupils or students, call us on 01 402 0777, or email firstname.lastname@example.org
