Sport development worked alongside Health to deliver a pilot project to 10 families at Thorpe Hesley Junior School on Wednesday mornings.The project was based around leading a healthy lifestyle and involved parents and children working together to learn more about healthy living.
The sessions covered a variety of healthy eating topics such as the eat well plate, sugars in drinks, portion sizes, smoothie making, making healthy pizza’s, blind taste testing of fruit and vegetables and much more.
The sessions also included physical activity such as a circuit, football and a walk as part of national walk month.
This has now been opened up to all the schools in Rotherham and three more are due to start in the near future.
James Rawlinson, Sports Development Officer said “The sessions ran very smoothly, both parents and the children engaged really well. They all thoroughly enjoyed both the theory and the practical side such as the smoothie making and the eat well plates.”
