Food and Fitness Programme

Update: The Food and Fitness teacher’s pack has some ideas for activities which may be useful for children currently learning from home due to school closures – download it here

The Dairy Council for Northern Ireland provides a range of resources for primary schools, one of which is the ‘Food and Fitness’ programme for Key Stage 2 (P5 and P6) pupils.

The primary aim of the programme, which has been running since 2004, is to communicate important health messages to children in a fun, interactive and creative way. The programme has been designed to help pupils explore the concept of balance; balance within their diet, based on eating a variety of foods from the five food groups, and balance within their lifestyle, focusing on the importance of accumulating at least one hour’s activity each day. The interactive programme is delivered to pupils in a 45 minute session by DCNI staff and is complemented by a teacher resource pack and a leaflet for parents.

If your school is interested in having the Food and Fitness team visit, why not fill in the form and submit your details online? Or print out the form and fax it back to us.

From the farm to the fridge, the Dairy Council for Northern Ireland acts on behalf of the dairy industry, promoting the natural goodness and quality of Northern Ireland milk and dairy products.

Our primary function is to communicate factual information to allow individuals to make well informed choices about dairy products that they consume and to inform them of the benefits of including dairy products in a balanced diet. We use a wide range of media, which includes television, radio, press, and social media. Our Advertising is complemented by public relations and promotional activities designed to communicate with specific groups.
