Vegetable Week & The Big Vegie Crunch
Did you know that currently only 5% of NSW children are eating enough vegetables? In order to work towards improving this percentage, we need to increase children’s knowledge, exposure and positive attitudes towards vegetables.
How can you help?
Vegetable Week, featuring the fun event ‘The Big Vegie Crunch,’ is a free, quick and easy school-based event for NSW primary schools, supported by NSW Health.
‘The Big Vegie Crunch’ is an attempt by NSW primary school students to break the record for the highest number of children eating vegetables simultaneously – and to get kids excited about vegetables!
Vegetable Week 2019 will run from Monday 1st April to Friday 5th April, with The Big Vegie Crunch being held at 10am on Thursday 4th April.
What happened in 2018?
Thanks to more than 302 schools across NSW, we broke the record! 50,260 students crunched at 10am on Thursday 1st March with a further 11,939 students crunching at other times over Vegetable Week.
Based on the amazing, positive stories in the media and feedback from those who participated last year, the Big Vegie Crunch was a great success.
It’s time to get involved and help us break the record in 2019. Register here!
