Schools and nurseries are being urged to take part in a UK-wide Healthy Eating Week from 3 June 2013.
Organisers, the British Nutrition Foundation (BNF), are aiming to promote healthy eating, cooking and awareness of food provenance and supply chains to children of all ages. The Week has been launched in response to concerns about increasing levels of childhood obesity, and what the Foundation sees as the lack of a formal framework for food and nutrition education within schools.
A range of free resources will be available to schools registering to take part, including assembly plans and presentations, free posters and stickers, classroom materials and activity ideas.
The BNF is working with participating schools to organise a national pupil survey on how young people view food and what they know about nutrition.
