5+5 A DAY

"To Nourish and Educate young people, children and their families in achieving their 5+5 a day"

Who We Help, Why We Help & the Difference It Makes

The projects aim is to support communities where children and their families are nourished and educated on the importance of making healthier and safer choices in pursuit of realising their full potential. Promoting all the essential vitamins needed coupled with the five recommended daily intake of fresh fruit and vegetables. And most importantly the following five core messages:

  • Hand Washing – Oral Hygiene
  • Mental Health - online bullying
  • Climate Change & Sustainability–  “dome to dish tunnel to table " (seed to a feed program) 
  • Nutrition - meals prepared from foodbank products (The Kit Bag Project)
  • Exercise 

The 5+5 a day programme is built on an evidence-based approach of a program implemented in New Zealand. Therefore, I have spent the last 10 years devoting my time and money developing a way to narrow the obvious divide between the classes by providing  a relief of need to the 1 in 5 children living in relative poverty, including our working poor. I have nourished and educated thousands of children who were going to school with no breakfast in their bellies with no lunch provided to them either by the school. Thankfully, this is no longer the case in New Zealand, therefore, my campaigning eventually paid off.

I returned home to the UK to run the program and now my University studies are complete and I have a degree in Youth & Community Work I will be working tirelessly to launch the 5+5 a day pilot program through food banks and other agencies. The Coronavirus has had a devastating effect on everyone in the community and I further identified the immediate need to further educate people about the importance of hand washing which has been a core message of the 5+5 a day for 10 years.
