Healthy eating in schools, universities and workplaces – Try something new!

Schools, universities and organisations who wish to participate in the BNF (British Nutrition Foundation) Healthy Eating Week are being urged to register for the event, which this year runs from 12-16 June.

As well as showing support for, and raising the profile of healthy, active lifestyles, those who register will be able to access exclusive resources to help plan the week’s activities.

In 2016, there were almost 7,000 registrations from the education sector – meaning more than 1.3 million young people were reached. Already the number is up for 2017, and there is still time for you to add your school or workplace to the list.

BNF Healthy Eating Week’s aims are to promote healthy eating and drinking, food provenance and cooking – as well as being active.

It lists 5 core health challenges:

  • Have breakfast
  • Have your 5-a-day
  • Drink plenty
  • Try something new
  • Get Active

Last year several schools took the opportunity to focus on healthy eating options, from tuck shop snacks, to what to choose from the school lunch menu, through to packed lunch choices.

 Workplaces offered big healthy breakfasts, tasty salad lunches and encouraged employees to eat their 5-a-day by drinking smoothies. Many employees were persuaded to swap their fizzy drinks for sparkling water.

If you would like to take part registration is straightforward and takes only a few minutes. You can register here

Once you’ve received all the information you’ll be ready to start planning your healthy menus and activities.

Remember, a healthy diet isn’t just about eating lots of fresh fruit and vegetables. It includes pasta, rice and other cereals; lean meats, fish and seafood; dried fruit and nuts – and of course frozen fruit and vegetables are just as nutritious as fresh!

And for that little more exotic something, we recommend you try our Love Taste frozen smoothies and our fruit, nut and seed Shot Packs from Snacking Essentials. Great flavours, great fun.
