BBC Children in Need – Rise & Shine Project Update

The Rise & Shine project funded by BBC Children In Need has enabled us to deliver a fantastic nutritional programme to 55 children daily in our Centre, providing breakfasts, lunches and healthy snacks. Our talented cook Cynthia in consultation with children, parents and staff has been creating heathy delicious meals to encourage children to try different foods and make healthier choices. Firm favourites include the vegetable curry, pasta bake and fruit crumble. Coming up in the programme to support parents we will be holding monthly “Vital Nutrition” workshops with Nutritionist Jane McClenaghan who will provide information on eating well and optimising children’s nutritional intake. Sessions will be informal and you are welcome to come along and ask Jane for advice on any dietary issues or needs of your child.
