Fruit and Vegetable Crew

In case you missed it this week in aid of 'Children's Art Week' we are re-sharing fruit and vegetable posters which have been designed by young volunteers from Youthwatch Darlington for children and families in the town. 

The posters feature as part of town centre collaborative initiative within the Cornmill Shopping Centre.

Not only this but copies have been placed on display within primary school dining halls and pre-school settings. 

The posters can be shared in school and community settings capturing children imaginations whilst offering an opportunity to learn about healthy food in a fun way. 

If you would like copies for your setting please get in touch as we are very happy to share.
