Success Story

As School Health Champions, we are interested in healthy eating at our school. In January 2019, Mme. Dickey (health teacher) invited Nurse Lorraine (Niagara Region school public health nurse) to visit classes to talk about hand washing and healthy eating. Following the Bright Bites “Paint Your Plate with Vegetables and Fruit” steps, students discussed how they could encourage their friends and family to eat more vegetables. Students participated in activity where a student would name a favourite vegetable. Other students raised their hand if they liked the vegetable. The School Health Champions presented this information to the Snack Committee where Student Health Champions help prepare fresh veggies for snack for all students each day at Our Lady of Fatima. As School Health Champions, we are excited to learn more about healthy eating!

Success Story

School Health Champion Clara interviewed Grade 7 students about their experience with You’re the Chef (YTC) program. YTC is a cooking program offered to students to develop skills and confidence in preparing healthy and tasty recipes, emphasizing vegetables and fruit. One of the students’ favourite recipes was the Vegetable Quesadillas. Using fresh peppers made the dish very tasty and colourful. Grilling tortillas was a new skill for some. The melted cheese in the recipe was a familiar taste treat for most students. Students enjoyed working with classmates, learning new roles and responsibilites in food preparation and tasting new food combinations. Having everyone pitch in to make the recipe was fun. The Grade 7 students encouraged the Gr. 6 Health Champions to make sure they sign up for You’re the Chef next year!
