There is a growing awareness that healthy eating plays a crucial role in the development of young people. 'Healthy Schools' and popular television programmes have raised the interest in this subject.

Margaret draws on her practical experience to produce a book that will engage children in activities and provides teachers with the resources necessary to stimulate interest.

There are nine themes including breakfast, dinner and parties and celebration. Each theme has a Circle Time start, a draw and talk or draw and write activity followed by activities which include 'Let's Grow It' and 'Let's Make It'.

The involvement of families is encouraged in order to engage school and home in cooperation on the subject of food and health.

Margaret Collins is a former headteacher of infant and first schools. She is now Senior Visiting Fellow in the School of Education at the University of Southampton. She researches children's perceptions of health education topics, writes teaching materials for children, books and articles on PSHE.
