VEG POWER: EAT THEM TO DEFEAT THEM 2020
80% of our children are not eating enough vegetables. Veg Power is on a mission to inspire children from early years through primary school and into their teens to vegi-loving habits they will keep for life and in turn share with their children.
Veg Power created a partnership with ITV and together created the 'Eat Them to Defeat Them' campaign aimed at primary school children, it ran in Q1 2019. Click to Watch the Advertisement.

TALKING HONEY BEES WITH LOCAL PRIMARY SCHOOLS
I've always had a love for the natural world so when I became a Lowton beekeeper it was my way of really trying to make a difference. I felt very passionate about the importance of these amazing little insects but I soon realised that just keeping bees wasn't going to be enough. I needed to promote the bee by helping people to understand more about them.
I LOVE MY BEES!
To create a greater awareness and understanding of the Honey Bee.
I believe that by allowing children the opportunity to learn the basics of this remarkable insect from a real beekeeper, not only gives children a valuable understanding of their importance but also an insight into how they look and live. If we help to educate the adults of the future then maybe our pollinators will have one too.
Service and Cost
I introduce children of all primary ages to the basics of the honey bee. Including identification, life in the hive, producing honey and their importance to us. It's a power point show with pictures and short videos. Honey tasting is optional.
The presentation lasts approximately 25 minutes and 4 classes can be done in a morning or afternoon session. The cost is £25 per morning or afternoon session.
I'm happy to do a full day or just a morning or afternoon.

#BE YOU PRIMARY SCHOOLS PROJECT
What the project consists of:
Part 1 - Brainchild - Using an 8ft interactive Brain dome to capture the imagination of children, whilst exploring the top 5 ways to keep their brain healthy and learning about HMUK's unique 6 a day brain stimulation method.
Part 2 - Mind Tekkers - Involves children taking part in fun and interactive tasks to develop their brain. In this session children learn how to recognise symptoms relating to Mental Health problems such as anxiety and depression. Children will also learn the positive ways to combat Mental Health problems and the importance of talking and getting help.
Part 3 - Talkaway - In this classroom based session, children are given the tools to "Talkaway" whenever they need to. Resilience, exam stress, key stage transition, relationships, being yourself and Mental Health barriers are all talked about in this session.
