The College of Haringey, Enfield and North East London’s Health and Social Care students have recently completed a five week programme to learn about healthy eating and share their knowledge with other young people by making podcasts.

The ‘Eat better Move More’ programme taught the Level 3 students how young people can eat healthy food, become more active and feel a lot better.

The students took part in workshops about exercise, takeaway and regular meals, healthy snacks, food labels and making better food choices.
Together they produced the six-minute ‘Eat better Move more’ podcast aimed at 16-19 year olds, which shows how small changes make a big difference by cutting down on junk food, walking more and eating fruit and vegetables.

The podcast is available to students on Ezone, the student intranet, and may be used in a larger campaign later in the year.

18 year old Health and Care student, Dionne Mungombe, said: “It was very interesting to learn about healthy eating and how what we eat and do now will affect us later in life. It’s a great knowledge to have and definitely something I’ll be sharing with my family and friends.”

Vice Principal of Curriculum and Learner Experience, Jane O’Neill, said: “This project raised awareness among students in a fun and creative way, and is something they will benefit from for the rest of their lives.”
