Smoothie Education on the Menu
A donation of two smoothie makers, cups and straws and a large selection of fruit by Redditch charity the Oakland Foundation are helping bring the topic of food and nutrition to life for pupils at a local school.
Ipsley CE RSA Academy Principal, Nicola Beech, said: “Through the smoothie project, pupils are learning about healthy eating whilst also developing entrepreneurial skills.”
Foundation trustee, Hayley Smith, stated: “Having a nutritionally well balanced diet which includes fruit and vegetables promotes children’s growth and development. When Ipsley School’s Smoothie Team told us about their plans of setting up a ‘Smoothie Club’ and about the smoothie project, we were more than willing to get involved.
“The Foundation’s primary objective is to support the needs of local children and families in the Redditch and Bromsgrove areas through our involvement in projects relating to health, nutrition, education and sport – and this project certainly delivers that.”
