Educating Schoolchildren about the Benefits of a Balanced Diet


Byline: By Gwyn Howells

Last week AssemblyMinister for Environment, Planning and Countryside, Carwyn Jones launched the Hybu Cig Cymru-Meat Promotion Wales Education Roadshow at Cardiff High School, Cardiff, at the start of a six-week tour of high schools across Wales.

The roadshow is an important part of HCC's aim to educate schoolchildren about the benefits of a healthy, balanced diet that is in line with Government guidelines and if the positive response of the children at Cardiff High School was anything to go by, the rest of the tour will be very successful too.

Today the Roadshow is visiting Rhymney Comprehensive School in Rhymney, before we link up with the Food Standards Agency at Ysgol Maes Garmon, Mold; Ysgol Morgan Llwyd, Wrexham and Elfed High School, Buckley.

Next on the school run for the HCC Roadshow will be Aberaeron Comprehensive, in Aberaeron; Ysgol y Berwyn, Bala; Welshpool High School, Welshpool and finally Bedwas High School, Bedwas as it completes its whistle-stop tour of Wales.

There are six 'zones' in the Roadshow, where pupils have the opportunity through hands-on play to learn about different aspects of diet and health. These range from an 'Activity Zone' where children undertake fun physical activity to a 'Tasting Zone', where children can watch a brief demonstration of a balanced and healthy meal being prepared easily before having the chance to taste it. It is a great way of getting the healthy balance message across without 'preaching' and plays a vital part in helping arm them with the knowledge to be able to make informed choices about their diet in the future.
