Premiership Rugby is the umbrella organisation which represents England’s 12 professional rugby clubs.
Its “Something To Chew On” project is a health programme developed in conjunction with the Food Standards Agency which aims to educate young people about food, nutrition and getting active as part of a healthy and balanced lifestyle.
The programme uses an interactive approach to teaching children about keeping healthy and involves parents so that learning can be reinforced in the home.
Topics include diet and health, food safety, consumer awareness and food preparation. As well as classroom sessions, there are practical sessions that cover rugby, fitness and controlling body movement to motivate children to be active.
