Healthy eat­ing learn­ing bears fruit for pupils

The Galloway News - - SCHOOL NEWS -

As part of their health and well­be­ing, pupils at Dalry Pri­mary and early learn­ing and child­care are find­ing ways they can main­tain a healthy diet.

Each Fri­day P4/5 run “Fruity Fri­day” where chil­dren from across the school are en­cour­aged to swap their usual snack and bring in a piece of fruit.

To help the chil­dren learn more about the va­ri­ety food they could eat to help them main­tain a healthy life­style, Char­lie Coid, pro­pri­etor of Fleet Fish, has agreed to call in at the school each week.

Last Fri­day morn­ing, as part of his Glenkens round de­liv­er­ing fresh fruit, veg­eta­bles, fish and eggs amongst other things, Char­lie stopped out­side the school and showed the chil­dren some of the dif­fer­ent fruits he had on board and dis­cussed with the chil­dren the sea­son­al­ity of the fresh pro­duce he sells.

The visit ended with the pupils de­cid­ing on a fruit for their class­mates to sam­ple this week; they all agreed the tan­ger­ines were de­li­cious.

Many of the chil­dren are won­der­ing which fruit will be cho­sen next week when Char­lie vis­its them again.
