13 Feb We’re encouraging students to eat healthily in 2019
If you follow Whitley Academy on its various social media channels, you’ve probably noticed that our catering staff are encouraging students and staff to eat healthily in the early months of this year.
We’ve found that the knowledge developed in the school community about a healthier diet, the food and drink that is offered and promoted throughout the school day, as well as the attitude of the whole school towards healthy living, can have a major influence on our students. The lifelong learning skills they need to make appropriate food choices and to develop a positive attitude towards diet and health can all be influenced by our lunchtime menus and classroom learning.
So, we would like to encourage parents and carers to enjoy healthy food and drink at home too, as it’ s more likely that these positive behaviours will remain with students throughout their lives.
