‘Healthy Me’ project at Newbold Church School

The Trust’s ‘Healthy Me’ nutrition project at Newbold Church School ended earlier this week.

The children learned about how hydrated they are through the foods they eat and discussed the importance of eating five portions of daily fruit and vegetables.

During the six sessions, the importance of a healthy diet was stressed and raising awareness of the use of food banks in order to help others was also covered.

Commenting on the project, the Trust’s activities co-ordinator, Alyss Hearnshaw, said: “The Y4 class were outstanding to teach and their contribution to the food bank, supported by other pupils and teachers in the school, was second to none!”

Nicola Finch, from the Derbyshire Community Hub, added: “Thank you so much to all involved.

“We have managed too take two boxes full of food out into the community to support those who are homeless. Fantastic work!”
