On Thursday afternoon, as part of the Premiership Rugby Healthy Eating scheme 'Something to Chew On'; Gloucester Rugby visited Elmbridge Junior School in Gloucester as part of their ongoing healthy living education programme.
Something to Chew On is a five-week programme consisting of a blend of education on basic nutritional science, in conjunction with tag rugby coaching in physical education lessons that all work to compliment the nutritional education.
10 schools in total have signed up and received the programme in the Gloucester and Cheltenham district. On Thursday it was the turn of Class Five, Year Four at Elmbridge Junior School in Gloucester.
The schools receive a 'Something to Chew On' resource and education pack containing full lesson plans, as well as a selection of new rugby equipment so they can enjoy the game as well as learning nutritional sciences.
Gloucester Rugby Community Rugby Development Manager Simon Monahan visited Elmbridge Junior School last week for a sixth week of lessons and a practical food session.
"I showed the students two healthy breakfast and lunch snacks, recipes that they can take home with them and reproduce themselves. All of the recipes include all of the vitally important macro-nutrients needed for a healthy and balanced diet.
"Something which is hugely important for young students that want to exercise and want to eat the right meals in order to gain the energy needed to run around and play sport!"
The programme also includes an invitation to the Gloucester Rugby tag rugby festival taking place at All Saints Academy on Thursday 10th July.
