Healthy Living Workshops

Norton Primary Academy Fit Food Workshops

Last year our nutritionist delivered 'Sugar Workshops' to years 3-6 and 'The Hungry Caterpillar' workshop to years 1, 2 & reception.

This term the pupils learnt about healthy snacks and energy. First covering the 'Eat Well Guide', the importance of exercise, then making their own healthy snack bars using dried fruit, oats, seeds & spices.
