Healthy Eating Week – 12th-16th June 2023

This year Healthy Eating Week will take place 12th – 16th June 2023.

The British Nutrition Foundation launched Healthy Eating Week in 2012, with the general aim to support and promote healthier lifestyles.  This year’s theme is Healthy Eating Week – For Everyone!  The British Nutrition Foundation have found that the cost-of-living crisis has affected the affordability of having a healthy, balanced and nutritious diet.  During Healthy Eating Week they will highlight evidence based advice and support to encourage everyone to eat healthily.

Within the Nurseries we will be talking to the children about healthy foods and healthy eating. We will try different foods from around the world and look at fruits and vegetables that help us grow and be strong.  You may like to make these healthy snacks with your child:
