NHS Fruit and Veg Scheme: Suspended

The NHS distribution team have informed us that the scheme has been suspended for the foreseeable future with the feeling that other provision is being made by the government.

The School Fruit and Vegetable Scheme will not operate at all for the period which would have been the summer term, that is, the period between 20 April 2020 and 22 July 2020. Supply Chain: Food will therefore not issue a summer term calendar and will not be asking suppliers to place any orders in respect of the summer term.

Travel to Tokyo Olympics Challenge

The British Olympics, Team GB and Paralympics GB, are challenging schools to take part in the Travel to Tokyo challenge to get active.

Travel to Tokyo aims to help children aged 5–11 to develop healthy, active habits by encouraging them to try new things, get active and have fun. Travelling in teams, children follow a virtual journey of athletes heading to Tokyo, exploring Japan, discovering more about the Games and finding new ways to enjoy getting active together with their families.

Schools launch the challenge to their school community using Starter Kit on the Get Set website (Travel to Tokyo section), and then young people and their families can log activity against their team for the chance to win great prizes.

Also included are lots of resources to bring the challenge to life. These include quick 10 minutes activities to try at home, longer challenges which can be set as homework and class presentations and videos exploring Japanese culture, Olympic and Paralympic athletes and the key PSHE topics of resilience, goal setting and mental wellbeing. There is also a Home Learning pack specifically designed for families to use to get active at home.

The challenge is brought to life by Team GB athletes Laviai Nielsen (Track and Field), Helen Glover (Rowing) and Anthony Ogogo (Boxing) and Paralympians Will Bayley (Table Tennis), Natasha Baker (Dressage) and Abdi Jama (Wheelchair Basketball).

Participating leisure facilities will be providing taster sessions in school and at facilities. Look out for more information on participating venues.

New! BNF Healthy Eating Week @ Home: 22nd-28th June 2020

This year, in addition to its main BNF Healthy Eating Week, the British Nutrition Foundation (BNF) has decided to run BNF Healthy Eating Week @ Home. This will be a ‘virtual’ Week, open to everyone!

BNF Healthy Eating Week @ Home will take place from 22-28 June 2020. The aim of the Week is to encourage families and people of all ages to take part in a range of key health challenges at home (or in nurseries, schools, universities or workplaces, where social distancing measures allow).

There will be seven health challenges (based on those identified for the main BNF Healthy Eating Week) which will be supported by a range of evidence-based, easy to access resources on a dedicated area of BNF’s website. BNF will also be hosting two cooking sessions each day at 10am and 2pm! Recipes will be provided!
