The British Nutrition Foundation’s (BNF) Healthy Eating Week is fast approaching and already more than 2,000 schools and nurseries – representing 987,832 children – have registered to take part!
This year’s event runs from 11th to 15th June and aims to increase knowledge about healthy eating and wellbeing, physical activity, food provenance and cooking, by providing schools and organisations with a series of challenges to complete throughout the week, supported by activities and informative resources.
The week will follow five themes: Have Breakfast, 5 A DAY, Drink Plenty, Get Active and Make A Change.
“Participants are encouraged to complete a series of challenges during the week in June, however, this year our materials have been designed especially so that the initiative can be continued all year round,” said Roy Ballam, managing director and head of education at the BNF. “BNF Healthy Eating Week 2017 was the most successful so far, with approximately five million children, students and employees participating. This year, we want to reach even more people and make BNF Healthy Eating Week 2018 the best yet!”
BNF Healthy Eating Week registration packs are tailored for nursery, primary, secondary and adult age groups, meaning that all activities will be suitable and age appropriate.
