ALEXANDER SCHOOL PROMOTES CRUNCH&SIP® IN A VIDEO CAMPAIGN! - Selected as one of the four schools across NSW for its successful implementation -
The Crunch&Sip film crew came to AGBU Alexander Primary School towards the end of last year to record this healthy eating program in action. As a member of the Healthy Kids Association, we were happy to help share our success and encourage other schools to follow.
We are happy to announce that the promotional video has now been released and is published on the association’s website, with the aim of promoting the program to teachers and schools around Australia.
Together with three other schools involved in this project, the students and teachers of Alexander school are featured throughout the video, showcasing the success story and excellent work carried out at our school. In the clip we see our students harvesting some vegetables from the garden, preparing them in the canteen and serving them as part of our Crunch&Sip break!
The campaign video once again highlights the quality and diversity of education provided at our wonderful school!
Crunch&Sip is a set break during the school day when students can eat fruit or vegetables and drink water in the classroom.
Whether the break is in the morning or the afternoon, the idea is to help kids to re-fuel and boost their physical and mental performance and concentration in the classroom.
Each day, students bring a piece of fruit or vegetables to school to eat in the classroom, usually at a set time. In addition, each child has a bottle of water in the classroom to drink throughout the day to prevent dehydration.
Through Crunch&Sip, schools can demonstrate their commitment to nutrition education in the classroom by making links with the curriculum and creating a supportive school environment.
Crunch&Sip schools have a positive impact on students by:
Creating an enjoyable daily routine that increases fruit and vegetables intake
Promoting a positive attitude towards fruit, vegetables and water
Incorporating nutrition education into key learning areas of the curriculum
