Children in Ayrshire have been keeping fit and eating healthily thanks to Activ-eat, a healthy eating initiative for primary schools from Bupa.
Activ-eat has been designed to make healthy eating fun and memorable for children. Activities for Glebe Primary School in Irvine included tasting exotic fruits, making healthy smoothie drinks and playing games which highlight the importance of eating five portions of fruit and vegetables a day.
As a part of Activ-eat, the children were given a pedometer each to encourage them to do more physical activity and were left with a three-week challenge to eat five fruit and vegetables a day.
