Crunch and Sip program fruitful

CORINDI Public School staff have known for a long time the benefits of students eating fresh fruit and vegetables – so when they found out they could become part of a statewide initiative to promote it, they jumped at the chance.

The school has just registered to become part of the ‘Crunch & Sip’ program, an initiative in which schools give students a set break to eat fruit or salad vegetables and drink water in the classroom.

Students will be ‘re-fuelling’ with fruit or vegetables during the morning to assist physical and mental performance and concentration in the classroom.

“We already had a fruit break but we decided to officially register as a ‘Crunch & Sip’ school,” teacher and ‘Crunch & Sip’ co-ordinator Pat Fripp

said.

“That way we’re registered as a healthy school and we have access to extra resources from the initiative, like cookbooks.”

Karangi Public School was also registered on the website as a ‘Crunch & Sip’ school.
