On Tuesday 5th of November we started Food Dudes in our school.  Every day for the next 16 days the children will be given a variety of fruit and vegetables to be eaten.  For the first week, the children only have to taste their fruit and vegetable every day to win a prize.  After the first week, the children have to eat a handful of their fruit and vegetable every day to win a prize. The fruits and vegetables the children are eating are apples, oranges, bananas, raisins, cucumber, carrots, peppers and tomatoes.

 

On Day 1 if you tasted your orange and cucumber you won a Food Dudes pencil case.

On Day 2 if you tasted your apple and tomato you won Food Dudes colouring pencils.

On Day 3 if you tasted your raisins and carrots you won a Food Dudes sharpener.

After Day 16, Phase 2 of Food Dudes began.  The children are encouraged to bring in fruit and veg in their new containers and are given ticks on a Wall Chart every day if they are eaten.  At intervals along the Wall Chart, children are given rewards. This will continue through the year.
