FooTea is back at Cumbernauld Colts!
Last Friday, local children from Eastfield and Westfield Primary Schools started their 12 week journey to Get Fit, Get Healthy and Have Fun! The youngsters were given an hour of fun football activities delivered by the club’s coaches, followed by an hour’s session on positive dietary and lifestyle messages. They then all sat together to enjoy a hot, healthy meal of chicken and broccoli pasta bake and fresh fruit – all washed down with lots and lots of water.
This week, the children were coached on some basics around sequenced passing and the benefits of warming-up and cooling-down after exercise before enjoying some match play on the pitch at Broadwood. They then returned to the classroom to receive their own glossy workbook. This week’s educational topic focused on the “Eatwell Guide” which showed the children the different food groups and how to achieve a balanced diet to stay fit and healthy.
The youngsters are all excited to be returning next week, when they will work once again on their passing techniques and learn more about the importance of eating their five daily portions of fruit and vegetables.
