The 10th year of Sainsbury’s Active Kids scheme has launched at the Brighouse store.
Customers can now collect vouchers in-store and help registered schools, groups and clubs across Calderdale receive equipment and experiences. The scheme has launched seven months ahead of key changes to the national curriculum on cooking and healthy eating, where all pupils between the ages of seven and 14 are to be taught cookery from September.
To support these key changes, over 100 new cookery and nutrition toolkits have been added to the range of sports and cooking equipment on offer as part of the voucher exchange for schools, Scouts and Guide groups and clubs.
Sainsbury’s Store Manager Paul Mitchell added: “Throughout the last 10 years, our customers have played a key part in helping young children understand cooking and healthy eating from a young age With lots of great incentives this year and a greater focus on healthy eating and nutrition, we hope all of our registered schools, groups and clubs across Calderdale have fun collecting over the next few months”.
