What better way to teach young children about healthy food than to show them where it comes from? The Captain Planet Foundation offers ideas and support about how to have your own veggie garden! Even if you are unable to follow the complete model, there is a range of downloadable teacher resources to use that you can incorporate into your classroom.

An excellent hub of lesson plans and ideas. You will find everything from presentations to worksheets, all based around healthy eating. I particularly love the recipes section, it's a great way to instill a passion for good food amongst young children and to get parents involved!
A thematic unit of work that is based around the importance of physical activity. It looks at how young people can develop early habits to promote lifelong physical activity. It has some links to useful websites as well as cross-curricular links to ICT.
