Students from the Al-Hidayah Islamic School will be involved in the “Seeds for Schools” program, sponsored by Western Potatoes.
The school children have been busy planting, specially-designed school market gardens.
As well as providing a healthy lunch snack for their growing bodies, this fun, safe and rewarding activity will provide the school children with a hands-on understanding of how vegetables grow.
The principal of the school, Jamiel Pradhan, had this to say about the success of the program, “Potatoes are one of the most nutrient-dense vegetables available and provides substantial nutrition for few kilojoules. Just one medium sized potato, 150g, provides a good proportion of the recommended daily requirements of many important vitamins and minerals. Eating potatoes in moderation is therefore a great contributer to a healthy child’s diet.”
