40 children and their families had great fun this Easter Holiday taking part in SASP's Happy Healthy Holiday Playscheme that we ran at The Canalside.
The families enjoyed a colourful art and craft session, were set the challenge of try lots of healthy foods, cooked their own lunch and had fun on an outdoor quest! Throughout the day they won stars for the challenges they were set and received a prize from the Easter Bunny!
The Easter Bunny typically gives chocolate eggs but do we do the children and parents a favour by doing this? You can still achieve the same excitement by winning something creative. So instead of a sugary treat, the Easter Bunny gave the children a pack of chalks which creates hours more fun than a single chocolate egg and encourages the children to get creative outside in the sunshine!
During the session families got to learn more about healthy eating, the importance of balanced meals and why we need to reduce our sugar intake. They also got the opportunity to sign up for our future courses. We have on the horizon a 6 week course delving deeper into how changing our eating habits can improve our physical and mental health.
