Healthy Eating – Try and Taste

Since January 25th, the students of Ballyduff NS have been ‘trying and tasting‘ a piece of fruit or vegetable each week. This will continue every Wednesday until Easter.

We are currently emphasising the importance of healthy lunchboxes and eating a balanced and varied diet. We have a wonderful Healthy Eating Committee, under the direction of Mr Lyons and Ms Gallagher. The committee is a team of students, parents and teachers, working together to raise awareness of the importance of healthy eating and they are currently working on a healthy eating policy for our school.

Junior and Senior Infants had a visit from committee member, Hannah Neilan (parent), who spoke to the children about the health benefits of eating a balanced and varied diet. This was very informative and the children really enjoyed it!

Well done to the parents who are including fresh fruit and veg in their child’s lunchbox!
