Fruitti-Veggie Bites is a school-based nutritional programme which has started for our P3 and 4 children in Term 1. Through this programme, pupils are encouraged to eat 2 servings of fruits and vegetables a day. For every serving of fruit/vegetable, pupils will be rewarded a small card. Every 40 small cards collected by the class will be exchanged for a bigger card which will be placed in their class. The class which collects the most number of big cards will get a prize. The P1 and 2s will also be joining in the programme in Term 2 Wk 3.
