AN apple a day might help to keep the doctor away but at Mandurah Baptist College Primary School it also helps to provide healthy nutrition for the year 1 and 2 students who forget to take a Crunch and Sip item to school.
The healthy eating Crunch and Sip initiative involves students stopping once a day to enjoy fruit, vegetables and water.
Coles is helping by supplying the school once a week with 70 South West WA-grown Pink Ladies because they are the favourite and handy for the youngsters who forget to take their Crunch and Sip item to school.
Most of the kids are now keen to eat applies.
Coles representative Ben Vivian said Coles was delighted to be involved in a community health initiative.
