TV crew to shine the light on healthy schools initiative

Global Payments Healthy Schools Logo

The Global Payments Healthy Schools programme is set to feature on TV after a news crew followed Tigers as they delivered a day of food and healthy-living education at a Leicestershire school.

Global Payments Healthy Schools is a free initiative for primary schools delivered by Tigers on the importance of healthy eating and healthy living.

Ashleigh Theobald, Tigers health education officer, took the initiative into Croft Church of England Primary School this week, where she was joined by an ITV Central news team.

The TV crew were filming ahead of a week of programmes looking at ways to encourage healthy eating and living in children, and to tackle childhood obesity. The section filmed at Croft Primary School is due to be aired on ITV in the Central region on Thursday, June 14.

Theobald said: “Global Payments Healthy Schools is a great way to get across the healthy eating and exercise message to schoolchildren.

“We talk about which foods are good and which are bad for you, as well as fun exercises and games that they can play at home.

“We want children to go away and think about what they are eating, how much they are exercising, and we want them to have fun as well.”
