Following on from our successful ‘Healthy Eating Week’, we began phase one of the food dudes programme today. Food Dudes is an intensive healthy eating intervention which lasts 16 days. During this time, children in the junior classes are given fruit and vegetables while they are read a letter and/or watch a specially designed DVD of the Food Dudes. The Food Dude super-heroes save the life force from a gang of baddies whose objective is to take away the energy of the world by depriving it of nutritious fruit and veg. Each day the children are rewarded with stickers or small rewards and get a tick on the classroom wall chart for successfully eating the fruit and veg. The senior classes (2nd-6th) take part in 4 tasting days during phase 1, also get read a letter and/or watch a DVD episode and are rewarded with 4 rewards. Today we tasted carrots and grapes, they were delicious!!
