Olympians give Leamington school pupils healthy eating tips

OLYMPIANS dropped into St Patrick’s Catholic Primary School in Leamington to give youngsters healthy eating tips.

Team GB’s Alex Danson and Paralympian Lauren Rowles visited the pupils to teach them about the benefits of eating healthy food following the recent opening of Audi’s Leamington eco-concept store.

Fresh from cutting the ribbon to officially open the store at Shire’s Retail Park, rowing gold medallist Lauren Rowles and hockey gold medallist Alex Danson delivered an inspirational assembly as part of the supermarket’s initiative, Get Set to Eat Fresh – which has already inspired over two million school children to learn more about the benefits of cooking fresh, healthy food with their families.

To celebrate the official partnership between Aldi, Team GB and Paralympics GB, the medallists focused on the benefits of eating healthy food and the importance of exercise and believing in yourself.

They also talked to pupils about their experiences of competing and shared their challenging training regimes.

In addition, Aldi Leamington offered pupils at the primary school the opportunity to win a £20 gift voucher to spend at the new store. The youngsters were tasked with creating a poster to show what healthy eating means to them.

Olympian Alex Danson said: “It was great to speak with the children at St Patrick’s Catholic Primary School about the importance of eating healthily and how it can be fun to plan and prepare meals as a family. Hopefully we’ve also managed to inspire the pupils to keep active and try different sports.”
