The Duchess’s Community High School in Alnwick ran a programme of activities to promote BNF (British Nutrition Foundation) Healthy Eating Week, specifically for Year 9 pupils.

Through five challenges across the week, the school aimed to promote the benefits of a healthy lifestyle and diet. The five elements were having breakfast; having five a day; drinking plenty; getting active; and trying something new.

Morrison’s in Alnwick supplied free fruit for the whole year group for the having five a day aim, while a free lunchtime cooking session (pictured above) encouraged students to try something new.
