Children’s Health Program

I am a Certified Instructor to run the Mad Food Science Incursion & Children’s Health Program founded by Belinda Smith from The Root Cause. 

In 2022, the program will have reached 200 schools right across Australia. 

I have visited 45 schools across the Darling Downs, and have had the opportunity to empower 14000 Parents, Students and Teachers to make better food choices. 

Our program is about empowering children to eat more fruits & vegetables and minimise processed food. 

We offer schools the opportunity to partner with us for 12 Months to being about behavioural change around food. 

What’s Included in our 12 Month Children’s Health Program: 

  • Food and Waste Report
  • Communication Plan
  • Teacher and Staff Professional Development
  • Student Incursion
  • Parent Seminar
  • Parent Resources – Gold Family Membership, Newsletter Tips
  • Classroom Resources 
  • Wellbeing Journal
  • Support for 12 months

During the student incursion

Children will learn:
🌈 Why their body needs a rainbow of fruit and veg
😛 To taste with their tongue, not their eyes
🧠 How food can affect their mood, concentration and behaviour
🥦 To take responsibility for what they put in their mouth
👀 How to read food packets, and why real food is much better
