Healthy Living in Hawick

We enjoyed being part of a Scottish Grocers Federation ‘Healthy Living’ event at Burnfoot Primary school in Hawick last week. The Scottish Government sponsored programme aims to improve the health of the Scottish nation and reduce obesity through events and campaigns in and around convenience stores across Scotland.

230 children from P1 – P7 tried a range of healthy breakfast foods including a wide variety of fruit, cereals, toast and of course porridge. We were delighted that almost 200 children tried the porridge, which we offered with a variety of toppings, and can report that honey is the most popular porridge topping in Hawick!

Many thanks to CJ Lang for inviting us to take part in the event, and to the lovely school dinner ladies who let us cook up so much porridge in their kitchen while they were busy baking and making lunch!
