For those of you who may not have come across The Little Fit Foodie Programmes before, here is a bit about ourselves.

Fit Food Fit Life is a Community Interest Company, working with local Schools, NHS, Children’s Centres and Local Authorities throughout the West Midlands. Our mission is:

“To encourage and support adults and children to adopt healthier lifestyles, through a variety of practical fun food activities to learn about making better food choices and help to improve the health and wellbeing of the local Community.”

Working to this mission and to adhere to the new Government guidelines surrounding nutrition and healthy eating, “The Little Fit Foodie Adventure” will successfully cover this area of the curriculum, whilst always keeping your students engaged and well informed. Fit Food Fit Life CIC can help encourage and develop the knowledge of healthy eating within schools by addressing the health and wellbeing of the pupils and their families and through boosting their confidence to make healthier choices in their daily life. We know how important it is for children to be aware of today’s healthy eating messages, therefore our innovative sessions are interactive, informative and fun!

So, here is what we have been up to…

Our Fit Foodie team have been busy taking pupils out on a life changing adventure, stimulating their senses and entering the exciting world of healthy food and wellbeing! Our team have been working with Little Fit Foodies all around the West Midlands; introducing new foods and feeding their brains with knowledge and mouth-watering healthy dishes, such as Crunchy Vegetable Cous Cous and Yoghurt Sundaes!

Our Fit Foodie adventure does not stop there! It’s very important for the pupils to learn from their teachers too, so our team has been out teaching…the teachers! Our staff training sessions are filled with useful tips and information to get the children excited about healthy eating and nutrition; including the government guidelines and interactive cooking! Even better, the dishes are sampled there and then! Not only do the Fit Food Trainees receive all recipes, they also receive an information pack - all developed by the NHS.
