Central School pupils and their parents get health advice from the Grow Well Choices programme

Peterhead Central School pupils received some healthy eating advice from the Grow Well Choices programme on Wednesday, June 4.

Building on work already done at Central School, the programme aimed to show pupils the healthy choices they can all make on a daily basis.

Parents were invited along for help and tips on how to continue healthy eating at home, and were also offered to join community health groups in cluding Healthy Helpings.

The event was organised by the school along with partners NHS Grampian, Community Learning Development, Aberdeenshire Council and Community Food initiatives North East.

There were various educational stalls for the children to look at, including one that explained how much hidden sugar is found in different food and drinks, and offered many alternative healthy snack options.

NHS Grampian health improvement officer Mary Bellizzi said: “The aim of this open event is really to engage parents and ensure they know what foods to choose.”

“The event has been great, we have seen a lot of parents come in which is great and the children have been well entertained with the various stalls.

“We set up a dining area with full fruit bowls and they have gone down well.”

Mary added: “We will follow this event up with Confidence to Cook and Healthy Helpings groups for parents who were interested in joining.”
