A new resource www.Eatright.eu designed to help Early School Leavers learn skills in healthy eating and food safety has been launched by safefood and is the first free online resource specifically designed with early school leavers in mind.
With up to 1 in 5 teenagers¹ leaving school early, this can impact negatively on their longer-term health, as limited knowledge around healthy eating and physical activity is a contributory factor to the growing problem of obesity on the island.
Mr. Gerry Griffin, National Co-ordinator Youthreach, the full-time training programme for early school leavers in the Republic of Ireland said “This website is a great opportunity for our staff to deliver life skills training around food and hygiene, in a way that is engaging, empowering and relevant to the needs of young people in society. It does exactly that in a way that is clear, concise, structured and visually appealing to our students.”
