Only 7 percent of our children eat fruits and vegetables daily, while 53 percent eat a sweet or salty snack every day. For that reason, a number of partners want to examine together with the Flemish Government how sustainable and healthy eating can be integrated in the curriculum and meals provided at our schools.
The school is the perfect place to cultivate good eating habits. Children can learn the importance of a fair and balanced diet from an early age. But to get there, governments, actors in the food sector and schools must join forces.
A new coalition for sustainable nutrition?
We explored the possibilities together with our members at the event 'Meer Vredeseilanden' end of September. During our workshop, participants were given the opportunity to put ideas and proposals on the table and to investigate opportunities for partnerships. We also looked at some inspiring examples.
