School Food Ambassadors are a team of pupils in school who are there to support the development and implementation of food policies and promote healthy choices in relation to food. They are the pupil voice in relation to food across the school.
Our current Food Ambassadors are…
Here is a snapshot of what the School Food Ambassadors (past and present) have done in the past, up to March 2021:
We have had regular meetings at lunchtime or after school (School Food Ambassador Club).
The children have helped prepare and serve bagels for children as they enter the school each day.
The children set up a ‘Pay as You feel’ market stall for families on a Tuesday afternoon (the food was supplied by ‘Fuel For School’/The Real Junk Food Project and was food that had been intercepted from its journey to landfill but was all fit for consumption).
The team have helped to reduce the amount of food on the floor in the dining room by making signs to remind children to put food in the bin or back into their lunchbox.
The children have created a leaflet for parents regarding healthy packed lunch ideas.
They have made a salad and a vegetable stir fry to develop cooking skills and healthy recipes.
We are hoping to get the team fully back up and running in the Summer Term, so watch this space!
