Lidl - Fit Factor

What is "Fit Factor"?
Lidl Ireland has joined forces with the The Irish Heart Foundation to create the Lidl Fit Factor, a programme that is designed to promote healthy eating and physical activity among children.
The Lidl Fit Factor programme is a fun, school programme designed for 3rd and 4th classes. It teaches your child about healthy foods and the importance of a balanced diet and also about the importance of physical activity. The fun, yet educational programme which has been developed in accordance with the SPHE Curriculum is a 2week long course integrated into the classroom and teaches lifelong positive associations with health and well-being. What's more schools even have the chance to win loads of prizes as the LIdl Factor has an inbuilt creative competition element. To discover more about the Lidl Fit Factor, click the following link:

What have we been doing?
3rd and 4th Class have been busy taking part in all things healthy, fit and active. From the FIRST EVER Junior MasterChef competition in Scoil Íde, to making funny faced pizzas, smoothies, a tour of Lidl to learning all about the different food groups in the food pyramid.
It wasn't just 3rd and 4th who got active - the whole school had a 'Healthy Heart Day' where 3rd and 4th class led them in an Aerobics session to music. We also had a demonstration of all the Sports we do outside of school from Junior Infants, right up to Sixth - that's right, Basketball, Camogie, GAA, Ballet, Karate and more! Stay tuned to see how they got on with all these activities!

Join your child in the Lidl Fit Factor
Perhaps you could play a game of football, go for a cycle or an evening walk with your child. Maybe even suggest a home cooking session with your favourite fruits and vegetables whilst exploring the positive benefits of healthy eating and physical activity...
Even a trip to your local Lidl can be exciting as you help your child discover new and healthy foods from different origins.
