Helping Children Understand Healthy Eating

12 May 2007

The Clay Studio is marking Christchurch Food Festival with a healthy eating promotion for children. From today until the end of half term week, children will be encouraged to paint a plate to represent their understanding of healthy eating.

For just £8 the children will have a plate and tuition in simple painting skills to enable them to create a unique plate that they can use every day while astounding friends and family with their creativity.

The winners in the under 10s and 10-16 year old categories will each receive an annual membership of our new Clay Friends scheme that offers generous savings on painting and much more. Runners-up will receive painting vouchers.

Mary Payne of The Clay Studio said:

“We believe it is important for children to learn about healthy eating from a young age so they grow up making the right choices for their future. With Christchurch Food Festival there is a focus on quality food and so we are running this now to encourage children to take more interest in what they are eating.”

The Clay Studio Café ensures that children (and adults) are able to make healthy eating choices. A range of high quality and locally-sourced food and drinks provides a wide choice of tasty and healthy lunches and snacks.

The Clay Studio is all about having fun but at the same time learning useful skills. Painting pottery helps children to express their creativity while having a fun time.

The Clay Studio is a contemporary pottery painting studio, offering visitors the opportunity to paint their own pottery and learn different painting and decorative effects through the Painting Academy and by having trained staff always on-hand. Alongside the painting is The Clay Studio Café which offers snacks and beverages, sourced, wherever possible, from local Dorset and Hampshire producers.
