Final call for primary schools to join the Healthy Heroes Lunch Club
Healthy Heroes Lunch Club, supported by the Irish Bread Bakers Association (IBBA), is issuing a final call to Irish primary schools to register for the 2023/2024 educational programme.
Now in its tenth year, created by teachers, behavioural and nutrition experts, the Healthy Heroes Lunch Club is one of Ireland’s leading classroom initiatives, reaching over 300,000 children to date.
The nutrition and education initiative demonstrates first-hand how fun and healthy eating habits are cultivated, while offering students the opportunity to build on a variety of skills such as leadership, teamwork, and communication skills.
Furthermore, the Healthy Heroes Lunch Club empowers students to make responsible and healthy choices when it comes to food, which can have positive impacts on future habits surrounding nutrition.
Sarah FitzGerald who oversees the Healthy Heroes programme on behalf of the IBBA says:
“Healthy Heroes has been helping to make a real difference in fostering positive nutritional attitudes in schools across the country for the past ten years. Incorporating healthy eating habits in an enjoyable way from a young age, while also teaching children valuable skills such as leadership and communication, are vital steppingstones to shaping their future attitudes to nutrition. We look forward to continuing to build on the positive impacts of the Healthy Heroes Lunch Club into the future.”
