Teacher Testimonials

“Children in my class have stopped bringing in junk food.  The Food Dudes Programme was enjoyable and fun and the infant classes loved the DVD.  We also used different fruit and veg to print with in Art.  The children’s behaviour and concentration has improved.”

“I found the programme was excellent and was a fun, exciting way to introduce the children to various fruit and veg.  Cross-curricular links included a healthy eating theme within SPHE and pastel drawings of fruit and veg in Art.” 
“The food dudes programme was fantastic for the children. The majority of the children now have at least 2/3 portions of fruit/veg for their lunch each day. Parents of the children in my class have informed me that their children remind them not to forget to put fruit + veg in their lunch boxes each day – fantastic!”
“An excellent programme, vegetables and fruit were always delivered fresh. Children enjoyed the programme and I am certain that it introduced children to f+v who would never have had it for lunch before, and who are now continuing to enjoy it.”
“A wonderful incentive to children and parents that has caused awareness of the importance of a healthier lifestyle and food choices.”
“I think it was a great success with my class, and the school in general. All of the children were much more willing to try out fruit and veg and realise that they are not only beneficial to their health but are also quite nice.”
“The programme was very well organised and presented. I feel the children are far more aware of the benefits of eating fruit and veg following t he programme. Many of the children in the class had never tasted the fruit and veg featured in the programme and are now bringing it in their lunchboxes. Prior to the programme I had no child with fruit or veg in their lunchboxes. Now I have 20 most days.”
