British Nutrition Foundation Healthy Eating Week

Glenurquhart Primary is taking part in BNF Healthy Eating Week this week.  The children were all introduced to this at an assembly yesterday.

The purpose of the Week is to raise awareness of healthy eating and drinking, cooking, where food comes from and being active to promote key health messages and habits to young people.

We will be trying some of the BNF Healthy Eating Week challenges during the Week.  These are:

  • Have breakfast;
  • Have 5 A DAY;
  • Drink plenty;
  • Get active;
  • Make a change.

Our school will focus on the Drink Plenty challenge with all the children encouraged to take their water bottles to school today and record how much they’ve drunk.
