IN celebration of the Year of Food and Farming, pupils at Herman Middle School, Gorleston spent a week looking at where food comes from. The children got back to basics by making their own bread, butter, vegetable soups and fruit smoothies. Paediatric nurse Linda Triggs from the James Paget University Hospital visited to talk about healthy eating. The children played games like “who wants to be a healthionaire?” and matched foods to the correct food group on the “eat well plate.” A raffle was held to raise money for the victims of the Burma cyclone disaster. Local shops and businesses donated generous prizes of food hampers, complimentary meal vouchers and free fitness and leisure club passes in support of the appeal. A total of £220 was raised. The week culminated in the annual school fun run where the children, teachers and parents ran dressed up as farmers, fruit or vegetables in keeping with the food and farming theme.
