GoFitba kicked-off again this month with 14 of our partner clubs and we took time last Friday to visit one of the projects which was being delivered by the Falkirk Foundation who welcomed 20 schoolchildren from St. Andrews Primary School.
The children began their 12 week journey on this health and wellbeing initiative in great style by playing on the Falkirk pitch which they enjoyed enormously. The coaches from the Foundation started off the session by getting the kids to warm-up and then concentrated on developing their passing skills before arranging some small-sided games. They then moved into the stadium for an hour of education around leading a healthy lifestyle through diet and nutrition, with each child being given their own interactive journal with this week’s theme focussing on the Eatwell Guide. By this time the children had certainly worked up an appetite and were able to enjoy some social time together before being served a hot nutritious meal of chicken or vegetable pasta bake, lots of water and fresh fruit. We look forward to hearing more about the project at Falkirk as the children continue their journey to Get Fit, Get Healthy and Have Fun!
