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 (the Food Dudes characters), repeated tasting and rewards. Your child/children will be participating in the Food dudes programme. The programme will be commencing on Tues 02nd Oct for Junior Room pupils and on Friday 12th Oct for Senior Room pupils.
It runs for 16 consecutive days for Junior Room pupils and 8 for Senior Room pupils
It is ultimately designed to enable children to enjoy eating healthy diets, and to create a healthy eating culture within schools. There are 2 levels of participation in the programme within the school: for junior and senior classes.
Pupils will be offered the opportunity to participate for 8/16 days tasting each of the fruits and vegetables. They will be rewarded with small prizes for eating these foods. Children then receive fruit and vegetable containers which encourages them to bring in and eat fruit and vegetables from home as part of their daily lunch diet.
All children will automatically be included in the programme but if for any reason you do not wish for your child to take part please inform the school.
We hope you and your child have fun with the Food Dudes!
