This week Year 6 started the ‘Growing Well, Growing Healthy’ NHS programme. During their sessions the children will learn about portion sizes, food categories and how to make wise choices when it comes to meals and snacks.

Charli, Y6, said: “I liked how they showed us how much protein, carbohydrates and vegetables to include in a meal using our hands and fists as measures.”

Annabel, Y6, said: “They told us lots of interesting facts that I didn’t already know, especially about portion sizes. I can’t wait for the next session!”
