Whole Grain Food: food that contains all three ‘bits’ of a grain- the bran (fibrous outer layer), endosperm (inner part) and germ (heart of the grain kernel). It can be found in brown rice, whole grain bread and pasta, corn tortillas and popcorn.
Fact: it is well known that the Mediterranean diet is one of the healthiest in the world; lots of fresh fruit and vegetables, wholegrain cereals, nuts, fish, some dairy and olive oil as the main source of fat. Try introducing a ‘Monday- Mamma Mia Mediterranean Menu’ to your school canteen.

This week long project aims to get pupils and school staff thinking about, and actively promoting, positive mental health and well-being.
We accept any actions that promote physical and mental health and wellbeing for your schools Green Flag application.
