Breakfast Blitz! Help fill our Kids Eat Smart Cupboards!

Food Drive March 15,2017!

With the food costs rising throughout our province, we rely on our community supporters more than ever to help support our KES Clubs!

To increase awareness and donations to our KES Clubs, we are asking you and your school community to participate in a province wide Food Drive, which we have called a Breakfast Blitz. Hosting a Breakfast Blitz at your school is a great way to stock your cupboards for the rest of the year.  It’s also a great way to alleviate some of the heavy lifting and stocking of cupboards for our KES Club shopper volunteers. Use the poster to send home to parents, post around your school, and even ask the community to get involved.

If you are a business or community group feel free to take part and donate foods to your local school.  Foods approved by the School Food Guidelines and served at our KES Breakfast Clubs daily can be found on the poster attached.

Please reach out to your local KES Regional Coordinator with any questions or if you require assistance planning your Breakfast Blitz call our office at 877-722-1996.

We are asking you, as one of our valued partners and supporters, to help us spread the message about healthy eating.  All you have to do is take a picture of you, your coworkers, your friends and family eating smart and post to Facebook, Twitter or Instagram using #ieatsmartNL.   Ask your friends and followers to like, share and do the same.  Let’s see if we can get Newfoundland and Labrador sharing how we eat smart!

Apple Day

Apple Day is a fun day held during March which is Nutrition Month. To create a little bit of fun and excitement, children are encouraged to wear the colour of their favourite apple – red, green, or yellow. KES Club volunteers serve apple and apple inspired recipes during their meal on Apple Day

To support their KES Clubs financially, children are asked to bring a $1 donation. Several businesses take part in the fun and encourage their employees to wear their favourite apple colour, and some sell paper apples to raise money to support KES Clubs throughout our province.

Apple Day adds a little freshness on a cold winter day! If you or your company would like to participate in Apple Day please contact our office at 1 (709) 722-1996 or info@kidseatsmart.ca
