Over half a million schoolchildren have taken part in Incredible Edibles since its inception and places on the curriculum-linked programme are limited to 1,800 schools.

The primary school programme is centred around five tasks encouraging children to learn about healthy eating.

To launch the 2023 programme, All-Ireland winning Meath football stars Shauna Ennis and Katie Newe were at Kilcloon National School in Co Meath, where they spoke about the importance of fruit and vegetables in their diet. Agri Aware, the independent agri-food educational body, is a charitable trust tasked with the mission to enhance awareness of the value of modern agriculture and farming, the stewardship of the rural environment, animal welfare, and the benefits of nutritious Irish food.

Meath football stars Stacey Grimes, Shauna Ennis and Katie Newe launched the Agri Aware Incredible Edibles Schools programme at Kilcloon National School in Co Meath.


In 2022 over 130,000 Irish schoolchildren across primary and secondary levels have taken part in Agri Aware’s education programmes.

Alan Jagoe, chair of Agri Aware, said: “It was absolutely brilliant to have the Meath ladies help to launch the Agri Aware Incredible Edibles programme in schools.

“Our Incredible Edibles programme is our longest-running and like the fruit and vegetables every year, it continues to grow.
