Corby Glen Community Primary School
On Wednesday afternoon, Greenfinch and Brambling classes were treated to a workshop by visiting Inspire Plus ambassador, Sophie Allen. Sophie is a British Olympic swimmer and although she has retired from competitive swimming, she is still very involved in sport locally and is passionate about children’s health and fitness.
During the workshop, Sophie explained how macronutrients (carbohydrates, proteins and fats) work together to fuel your body and how having the right amount of each nutrient in childhood is vital for adult health later on too. The children talked about the kinds of foods they enjoyed regularly and Sophie explained which of the foods were good choices or how they could be substituted for healthier options.
