Well done Hunter New England Schools! Over 80% of our schools have certified for Crunch&Sip®.

Crunch&Sip® is a time in class when children can eat a piece of vegetable or fruit that they have brought from home and sip on some water. Giving students this opportunity to “refuel” has been linked to improved physical and mental performance and concentration in the classroom.

If your school in interested in joining the program or requires support in making the program sustainable please contact us and view the below documents and websites:
