HEALTH and well-being is a big focus for students at Meadow Springs Primary School with the school celebrating its first Great Aussie Crunch Day.
The event helped equip children with the necessary tools for making e healthy eating choices.
Coles Mandurah Forum provided a free fruit stall along with a range of fun activities and education sessions.
Meadow Springs Primary School P&C president Debbie Hone said the Great Aussie Crunch program taught kids about the importance of eating vegetables and having fun while doing so.
“Healthy eating has so many positive effects for students, including helping them concentrate throughout the day, improving their attention span and even making them happier,” she said.
“With research proving that only one in six WA primary school aged children are eating the recommended daily intake of vegetables, programs like the Great Aussie Crunch Day are becoming a necessary part of school curriculum. “
Coles Mandurah Forum store support manager Ashlee Moore said the whole team was excited to showcase its range of fresh produce to students and help educate them about the benefit of healthy eating.
“We are a team of locals serving locals so it means a lot to us to be able to support the families and staff from Meadow Springs Primary School, many of whom regularly shop at our store,” she said.
