Why not use the festival to support your Healthy School programme?
The festival is admission free and we are ensuring that children’s interests are firmly placed at the heart of the festival. The festival weekend will offer a whole range of food experiences including an action packed programme of food themed activities for children of all ages. As well the browsing, tasting and shopping experience in our indoor and outdoor markets there will be cookery workshops, art and Lego activities, i Pad animation, challenges and educational food games.
Whether or not your school is already involved in food projects and healthy eating initiatives there are lots of ways that your school can get involved in the run up to the festival. The festival can act as a focus for existing food projects and offers a perfect opportunity to get parents involved too. Teachers interested in new ideas to get their class interested and talking about food can find lots of project ideas and resources on the Food for Life website www.foodforlife.org.uk
If your school has a cookery club or gardening club, or a school dinner menu you are particularly proud of, why not let us know about it and we’ll feature it on our website.
We know that everyone loves a competition so we are offering children the opportunity to take part in our Weston super Bake Off. There are categories for all ages – and some very exciting prizes to be won!
Details will be available soon on our competition pages.
The winners will be announced in the Weston Mercury and prizes awarded at the Festival. If your school has a cookery club or gardening club, or a school dinner menu you are particularly proud of, why not let us know about it and we’ll feature it on our website.
