Health Promotion- Food Dudes and More!

Past Events

Berrings National School is a Health Promoting School.

We held our policy launch day in February 2008.
A lot of hard work was put in by all involved. All of the children participated on the day. Parents were invited to partake in the fun. The children performed songs, raps, dances, gymnastics and short dramas. Smoothie Making Booths were set up for the day as well as other Healthy Eating Stands. We had a visit from Mr. Carrot Head and a range of guest speakers on the day including a Dental Nurse and Frances Deasy, Health Promotion Officer. The day was a huge success and thoroughly enjoyed by all.
Food Dudes is a programme developed by the University of Wales, to encourage children to eat more fruit and vegetables both in school and at home. It is based on positive role models (the Food Dudes characters), repeated tasting and rewards. We participated in this programme in 2008.

We had a launch day in 2008 and these are some photos of displays and activities!
