Little Ilford School Healthy Eating Week 2023

Posted February 1, 2023

Juniper were delighted to support Little Ilford Secondary School’s Healthy Eating Week which took place from Monday 23rd to Friday 27th January 2023.

The school run the event each year with the aim of promoting healthy lifestyles by highlighting food choices and promoting increased physical activity.

Throughout the week Juniper were involved in promoting ”healthy highlights” from the menu and students were encouraged to think positively about sustainability and seasonal food choices.

The real highlight of the week was the magnificant salad bar organised by our Chef Trainers Kerry Powell and Rachel Hamilton, and Peter Sawula our Health & Nutrition officer organsied a fun Fruit and Vegetable competition with the worthy winner receiving a Healthy eating cookbook.

Towards the end of the week our team provided an opportunity for the whole school to sample freshly made smoothies, these were very well received and students were shown how fun and tasty combinations can be easily made from healthy, fresh ingredients.

In addition, we also supported the students who were attending bike workshops by providing them with a free healthy breakfast to warm them up on some particularly cold mornings.

Special thanks go to Heather Thomas who co-ordinated the event on behalf of the school and all the Little Ilford Staff, the catering team and students as well as our suppliers, for their support in making this a very successful event.
