To nurture the skills of resilience is key to providing young people with the ability to cope with stress, adversity, failure and challenges. Resilience is evident when young people have a greater ability to “bounce back” when faced with difficulties and achieve positive outcomes.
Resilience is required to apply the effort to prepare food, persist in trying new foods and to choose meals containing fruits and vegetables rather than highly refined and processed options.
A whole-school approach to food that goes beyond lunchtimes and teaching in the classroom can achieve positive outcomes. A good school food culture helps children develop healthy eating habits so they can live healthier, longer lives.
Rates of overweight and obesity in both children and adults are continuing to rise nationally and locally. Helping children to have healthy attitudes and behaviours, along with good evidence based knowledge will enable them to make healthy choices as the default option and will allow them to develop and demonstrate the skills and abilities necessary to make informed choices about what they eat and drink, when and why.
