Healthy Hub News

lunch

The Healthy Hub have had such a fun and busy September!

To give our little athletes extra energy for the school athletics carnivals, the Healthy Hub setup their new stand and provided delicious and healthy fruit and vegetable platters to the masses. It was such a hit that during the first 100m event, the runners actually sped past the finish line and straight to the Healthy Hub stand for a snack!

It was such a pleasure to observe hungry hands reaching for the vegetables. It all went very quickly! Well done parents – you’re obviously feeding your children, good, healthy snacks.

What a fantastic and healthy start to spring we’ve had. The kids have loved our series of Bring A Cup & Fill it Up! On the first Thursday the Healthy Hub made two smoothies for the kids at recess.

• Banana, Mango and Yoghurt Smoothie (dairy); and
• Green Smoothie (non dairy) with kale, mango, pineapple and banana

If your kids loved them, click on the links and print out the recipe.

Both were a big hit, and surprisingly the green smoothie was very popular. Shhhh… in case it didn’t get chosen, we didn’t advertise the fact that it had kale in it. But please let your kids know, so next time they may just opt for a vegie juice or smoothie instead of the sweeter version.

In the second week the Healthy Hub made a hearty, healthy minestrone soup (vegetarian only). It was amazing to see the kids come back for 2nds and often 3rds. We simply ran out it was so popular!

Keep up the good work parents and keep choosing to buy healthy foods. A little tip to help out at the supermarket is if it’s not in a packet its going to be fresh and good for you!

You can find the recipes for soup, smoothies and a healthy muffin recipe at the following links:

Earlier this Term the Healthy Hub conscripted some energetic and enthusiastic students and presented a rap song at our first assembly.  It was a strong message about the benefits of our school’s Crunch & Sip program, with a big emphasis on how vital veggies are to grow stronger, faster, happier and smarter!  Take a look… and remember to pack crunch & sip for school each day!

Crunch and Sip

lunchThe Crunch&Sip program is an easy way to help kids stay healthy and happy!

Crunch&Sip is a set break to eat fruit or salad vegetables and drink water in the classroom. Students re-fuel with fruit or vegetables during the morning or afternoon, assisting physical and mental performance and concentration in the classroom. This gives kids a chance to refuel, a bit like putting petrol in a car.

Each day students bring fruit or salad vegetables to school to eat in the classroom at a set time. Each child has a small clear bottle of water in the classroom to drink throughout the day to prevent dehydration.

The objectives of the Crunch&Sip break are to:

    • increase awareness of the importance of eating fruit or vegetables and drinking water every day
    • enable students, teachers and staff to eat fruit or vegetables during an allocated Crunch&Sip break in the classroom
    • encourage students, teachers and staff to drink water throughout the day in the classroom, during break times and at sports, excursions and camps
    • encourage parents to provide students with fruit or vegetables every day
    • develop strategies to help students who don’t have regular access to fruit and vegetables

The Crunch&Sip website address is www.crunchandsip.com.au

Fruit and Veg September

lunchOur schools commitment to the Crunch & Sip Program along with events such as Bring A Cup Day and free Fruit and Veg Platters at all Food Stalls and sporting events helps students achieve the objectives outlined in Fruit & Veg September.

The objectives of Fruit & Veg September is to:

  • increase awareness of the need to eat more fruit and vegetables
  • increase positive perceptions of fruit and vegetables
  • increase opportunities for students to plan for, prepare and taste fruit and vegetables
  • support behaviour change by incorporating nutrition programs into key learning areas of the curriculum, the school canteen and whole of school activities.

Fruit & Veg September aims to encourage children to eat more fruit and vegetables. While the amount of fruit eaten every day by children around WA has increased over the last 20 years, most children continue to eat less than the recommended daily amount of fruit and vegetables.
