Congratulations to Alicia from St Charles Borromeo Catholic Primary School for her fantastic 'Eat your rainbow' poster!
You can see Alicia's winning poster in the window of your local Booths store soon. Don't have a Booths near you? You can see Alicia's winning entry on Pobble.
Booths bring you the best food and drink in 27 stores across North West England, Pobble is delighted to be working in partnership with Booths to educate young minds about eating healthy foods.
In order to grow a healthy mind, it's important that children keep their bodies healthy too. Learning the importance of eating well and making healthy choices is key. This year, new legislation will be released to tackle childhood obesity meaning that promotions of products in fat, sugar and salt will be restricted. To coincide with these important changes, we've teamed up with our friends at Booths to inspire children to make healthier choices ... and inspire their writing in the process!
We're asking pupils across the UK to create a healthy eating poster with the winning entry having their poster printed and displayed across the Booths estate and also receiving some awesome prizes!
How does it work?
Your class can run a 'Growing Healthy Minds' lesson, using our free, ready made lesson resources. Then your class will select up to three of your pupils' posters to be entered into our competition. Winning work might be chosen because it is original, funny, inspiring or simply the best piece of work that pupils has ever produced.
Teachers then submit their chosen pieces by easily uploading them to the Pobble platform, turning your writers into published authors and celebrating their creativity with Pobble's Worldwide audience. A real purpose to write! The ultimate reward comes when, on top of that, they have the chance to win great prizes! Plus, because we love to celebrate all young writers, we'll also be entering every piece of writing uploaded to Pobble using the tag HealthyMinds into an extra price draw to win a hamper from Booths Supermarket.
Winning entries will be chosen by the lovely team at Booths. Entries are in with the chance of winning one of these great prizes:
Teaching ideas 💡
To inspire your writers and save you time, we've created a writing lesson full of ideas, prompts and supporting resources so you can run your own 'Growing Healthy Minds' lesson and class writing competition. The lesson includes inspiring writing examples, images, a word bank, poster ideas and sentence openers as well as writing and discussion activities so your class can learn about making healthy choices and making good food swaps, before creating a healthy eating poster to encourage other people to make healthy food choices.
