Here in Holmpatrick National School we are taking part in the Food Dudes Healthy Eating Programme.
Food Dudes is a programme developed to encourage children to eat more fruit and vegetables both in school and at home. It is based on positive role models, repeated tasting and rewards and so far the children are really enjoying tasting and eating the fruit and vegetables each day. They are especially having great fun trying out the vegetables they have never tried before like mange tout!!
After these 16 days of fruit and vegetable tasting the children will be encouraged to bring at least 1 fruit and 1 vegetable to school with them every day from home, please continue to encourage your child to eat healthily and their bodies will reap the rewards.
