Our big message for this year’s Healthy Eating Week is, Eat well for you and the planet!

Each day of the Week has a different theme:

  • Focus on fibre - for meals and snacks
  • Get at least 5 A DAY - put plenty on your plate
  • Vary your protein - be more creative
  • Stay hydrated - fill up from the tap
  • Reduce food waste - know your portions

Get started by taking a look at the Healthy Eating Week primary pack. This provides information about the five themes, activity ideas and links to supporting resources on our education website, Food – a fact of life.

Use the Healthy Eating Week introduction presentation to introduce the Week to your primary pupils, or WATCH THE RECORDING of the primary assembly.

The General resources area below contains general resources to help you organise your week.

The Classroom resources area contains activity sheets that are unique to this year’s Healthy Eating Week (links to the majority of the resources, which are on the Food – a fact of life website, are within the primary pack).

The Posters and icons area contains the posters and icons for each theme.  

Visit the Recipes area to find a selection of recipes that support this year’s Healthy Eating Week.
