YOUNGSTERS at a South Derbyshire School have been eating healthily thanks to South Derbyshire community health service.
Students at the Pingle Schools’ pupil support centre have been provided with fresh fruit each day as part of the choosing health partnership funding scheme.
Sarah Stretton, pupil support centre manager at the school, told The Mail: “The funding enabled us to set up a health focus group in the centre. Providing fresh fruit also gave us to opportunity to promote healthy eating with our pupils.
“The funding was also used to provide Zumba classes and give the pupils the opportunity to cook healthy meals. This will hopefully provide them with skills for the future.”
Adele White, Year 8 pupil, said: “The group was great fun and I’ve attended every week. I can now cook spaghetti.”
