Munch and Crunch aims to integrate nutrition education with eating fruit and drinking water. The idea being that students re-fuel with fresh fruit / vegetables and drink water in the classroom, assisting physical and mental performance and concentration.
At 10:10am students get their fresh fruit, vegetables and water to crunch and munch while reading or working on normal classroom activities. Students without fresh snacks continue to work through the break.
Please remember when packing fresh fruit and vegetables they need to be small and simple items to enable students to be able to keep working and learning through this time. Some popular items already have been carrot and celery sticks, strawberries, cut up orange and apple pieces, grapes and mandarins. Larger apples and oranges are difficult for the children to get through.
