Aimed at helping children learn about healthy eating choices and the wider issues surrounding food sustainability, Future Food Kids (January 2017) consisted of a series of drama workshops focusing on the subject of healthy food.
The project was part of Barton Healthy New Town, one of ten healthy new towns sites which were part of the NHS England’s Healthy New Towns programme whose aim was to create innovative and sustainable ways of achieving improved health and wellbeing in communities.
Tales from the Dinner Plate used a range of techniques such as role-playing, storytelling and games to engage young people in the series of experiential workshops. Both fun and challenging, the sessions ensured that the pupils were engaging in the positive messages spread by those like ‘Future Food Scientists’.
The vision was for the pilot project to be adapted and adopted by schools nationally. Please find below the suggested programme for years Reception to Year 6.
This project was funded and supported by Oxford City Council as part of the NHS National Healthy New Town Project.
