Schoolchildren will be given a lesson in healthy eating and exercise at a primary school event.

On Wednesday, March 15 between 1pm and 4.30pm, children in years four and five, along with their parents, will be able to take part in Healthy Habits at St Mary's Junior Academy in Long Stratton.

There will be 10 stalls for children and parents to interact with including a free fitness taster session from Born to Move, fitness activities from South Norfolk Council's leisure team and a healthy eating team game from the Community Sports Foundation.

There will also be a wormery and leftover recipes from Love Food Hate Waste, advice on healthy lunch boxes from SERCO and tips on how to get your five-a-day from Tesco.

Councillor Yvonne Bendle, cabinet member for well-being and early intervention at South Norfolk Council, said: 'Obesity is a complex challenge but by working with schools we hope to help both children and their parents to encourage long-term change.'
