Foodies Working with Schools
Hands on with Healthy Food
Foodies work in schools to support nutrition and health topics in the curriculum through fun and hands on activities. Children learn about healthy eating, food and nutrition as well as practical skills such as growing, cooking and preparing healthy food.
Playford Foodies are encouraging children from Elizabeth Park Primary School to try new foods, and teaching them how to prepare healthy food easily using fresh produce, including produce from their own school garden.
“As Foodies we come to schools & different places in the community to teach people healthy eating habits & to encourage them to try new foods – things they haven’t tried before & encourage them to eat well so that in the future they will automatically make healthy choices as to what to eat.”
Mandy Barnard – Community Foodie
