Crunch&Sip® Classroom Activities

Crunch&Sip® is a set time in primary schools for students to ‘refuel’ on vegetables, salad and fruit and ‘rehydrate’ with water. Students who are not hungry and are well hydrated perform better in the classroom, show increased concentration, and are less likely to be irritable and disruptive. Many students are not eating enough vegetables and fruit or keeping sufficiently hydrated.

These Stage One Crunch&Sip® classroom activities aim to educate students on, and promote positive attitudes towards, healthy food and drink choices. Further supporting resources can be found here.
