Warburtons, Britain’s largest bakery brand, paid a visit to Sutton Coldfield’s Maney Hill Primary School to help celebrate Healthy Eating Week.
Wednesbury’s School Visitors, Nicola Burns and Alison Roper, visited the year 2 classes for a fun packed sandwich making workshop.
The School Visitor’s workshop provided the pupils with the opportunity to take part in a hands-on session that focused on the importance of healthy eating while enjoying fun activities along the way. The sessions help teaches primary school children simple life skills such as food preparation that they can replicate at home, as well as providing them with the right tools and information to make informed decisions about their own health and wellbeing.
Warburtons’ School Visitor Programme is an ambitious initiative that enriches food education for schoolchildren aged 5-11, from Devon to Glasgow. This year, the project has engaged with over 40,000 children, teaching them the importance of a balanced diet, hygiene and safety, food waste, and basic food preparation.
Nicola Burns and Alison Roper, School Visitors based at Warburtons’ Wednesbury site, said:
“We had a lovely visit to Maney Hill Primary School with the lovely year 2 classes who made us feel very welcome and were a real credit to their school. We helped the children create their healthy sandwiches and the children loved the tasting session. We thoroughly enjoyed the visit, and we hope that the children will feel informed to help them make healthy choices in the future.”
Year 2 Class teachers at Maney Hill Primary School, said:
“What a fantastic way to spread the word about healthy eating! We were delighted to be able to arrange this visit, my class haven’t stopped talking about it and are really keen to invite Nicola and Alison back. They really enjoyed the practical sandwich making activity which helped to promote the benefits of a balanced diet. We hope Warburtons will be able to celebrate healthy eating week with us again!”
