Cuna de Platero today inaugurated the fourth edition of its food education program “Fresayunando. The healthy breakfast of Platero Cuna”, in which more than 2,500 children from different schools will participate.
According to the Chairman of the company, Mr. José Manuel Márquez Gil: “It is an initiative already consolidated with which we transfer to students the importance of having a healthy diet, exercising and the consumption of fruits and vegetables, among which our berries are protagonists”.
With the collaboration of Cajamar Caja Rural, Cuna de Platero takes this educational program to five schools in Moguer and its surroundings: Pedro Alonso Niño, Virgen de Montemayor, Zenobia, San Juan Bautista and Las Salinas Children’s School. “Our intention is from the beginning of their lives, these children value the importance of having a good diet, where fruits have a prominent place. This will strengthen your health”, said Márquez. Fresayunando is also aimed at the educational community and parents, “so that what we teach today goes further and stays in their classrooms and in their homes.”
In addition to the lectures, the children receive didactic units adapted to the student’s age, with which through their protagonists – Teresa the strawberry, Fernando the blueberry, Flora the blackberry and Adelita the raspberry – discover the healthy properties of berries. It is also given a cookbook of healthy dinners and a backpack.
