Healthy Eating at Liscarroll N.S.

As part of health promotion in Liscarroll N.S. we were delighted to embark on a wonderful child friendly healthy eating programme “Food dudes”

It’s designed to educate children on the value of nutrition thus creating a culture of healthy eating within the school environment. 

We began the programme in October 2013. 

The national roll-out of the Food Dudes Programme is being funded by the Department of Agriculture, Food & the Marine and the European Union, and managed by Bord Bia.

The programme consists of two phases:

Phase One is an intensive 16 day period in which children are introduced to nutritious fruit and vegetables. Children receive lovely prizes for their successful efforts. 

Phase Two encourages children to bring fruit and veg to school everyday. This helps to maintain fruit and veg consumption long term.
