Our school is committed to improving children's health through education and by supporting the Australian Government's Crunch&Sip initiative.
Crunch&Sip is a break during class when students can refuel on fruit and veg. and rehydrate on water. The break assists students with physical and mental performance, and concentration in the classroom.
Crunch&Sip encourages fruit and vegetable snacking and drinking water. Healthy eating behaviours are modelled in the classroom and reinforce the nutrition messages in the PD/H/PE curriculum. By making fruit and vegetable eating and water drinking normal in the classroom, healthy habits can be formed and continued into adolescence and adulthood.
The Crunch&Sip break gives students the opportunity to eat the piece of fruit that might otherwise be left in their lunchbox. Students are also more likely to eat their fruit or vegetables and drink their water if their friends and peers are all doing it too!
We invite you to support your child to participate in Crunch&Sip by providing a clean water bottle and a piece of fruit or vegetable each day.
