Key stage 2
Food and Fitness Programme
Update: given the current situation with Covid–19, the Food and Fitness presentation is now available as a video to NI primary schools. Details of how to access this service below.
The Food and Fitness programme has been developed by the Dairy Council for Northern Ireland to help teach primary school children about the benefits of a balanced diet and an active lifestyle.
Running since 2004, Food and Fitness is for Key Stage 2 pupils.
The programme is designed to help pupils learn about a balanced lifestyle – the importance of a healthy diet and of physical activity. It uses colourful props, educational games, a fun exercise session and even a Food and Fitness rap.
The interactive presentation is usually delivered to pupils by the DCNI Food and Fitness team visiting schools throughout Northern Ireland. This academic year, however, due to the situation with Covid–19, Food and Fitness is available as a video instead.
The video continues to deliver the Food and Fitness messages in a fun and engaging way with the pupils joining in with the activities.
