As part of the Healthy Ireland initiative, Bray Area Partnership is delivering workshops in local schools from January to March 2019 - designed to support children and families to learn about nutrition, cooking and eating healthy food, and to encourage physical exercise.
Cook Eat Share workshops
Cook Eat Share training - delivered by Cooking Up Change - has a three-pronged approach to making healthy, affordable food accessible to all - working with children, parents and schools to create cultural change around healthy eating.
Programme for Parents: Six-week course for parents in the school to learn about providing healthier, less processed food choices for children - delivered in a relaxed and friendly style - includes food demos, recipe sharing and eating food together with the overall aim of “trying it out” at home and in the lunch boxes. Covers how to 'shop savvy' for value and health, clever store cupboard essentials, label demystifying and preparing a healthier shopping list.
In-school Workshop for Students: Covers what a healthy lunchbox looks like, easy food demos, promoting healthier food choices and the importance of physical exercise - delivered using friendly and motivational approaches with the aim of students talking about healthier food choices at home and amongst their peers.
