Up & Active work with Ribble Valley School
10 May 2017
Year 3 children at Waddington and West Bradford Primary school have enjoyed learning more about eating well and being healthy with the Ribble Valley Up and Active team.
Anita Saunders visited once a week and covered topics including the benefits of physical activity with fun games, energy balance, the Eatwell Guide, food tasting, hidden sugars and healthy meal planning.
The sessions went down well with the class, with children reporting that they are now considering the food they eat and how much sugar it contains. Their class teacher, Helen Nicoll, said, “It’s a fun way for children to engage with exercise and healthy eating”.
At the end of the sessions, all the children enjoyed receiving their up and active certificates during assembly.
