Starting on Monday 29 April, Agri Aware is bringing Healthy Eating Week to schools both in-person and online as part of its healthy eating and growing programme Incredible Edibles.

Agri Aware and Dole Ireland will be joined in both schools by chef and Life Is Better brand ambassador Eoin Sheehan from Co Limerick.

Eoin will be discussing the benefits of a healthy balanced diet and creating some smoothies for students.

According to Agri Aware chair Shay Galvin, Healthy Eating Week is an important milestone on students' Incredible Edibles journey.

“The schools roadshow is the highlight of the week and one we look forward to, engaging with students in person and also our national Healthy Eating Week webinar is a great opportunity to engage with students virtually that we cannot meet in-person,” says Shay.

Empowering health choices

Dole Ireland is supporting the event hoping to promote the importance of nutritious choices and sustainable living.

“We believe that every bite matters and by championing healthy eating habits, we're cultivating a brighter, more vibrant future for all.

"Together with Agri Aware, we're committed to empowering children of all ages to make wholesome choices that nourish both body and planet,” says Niamh Walsh of Dole Ireland.
