Buckinghamshire Freemasons magic up healthy eating for school children

Thursday, 11 July 2019

The Magic Club of Great Britain brought its Change4Life 'How to Eat Healthy' show to Swanbourne Primary school in Swanbourne near Milton Keynes

The event introduced Freemasonry to parents at the school through a newsletter, letting them know it was sponsored by the Freemasonry Supporting Local Communities programme. 

The show was also supported by the local authority with ‘Change4life’ leaflets being supplied to every child on eating healthy for them to take home.

As well as lots of fun and laughter, in the show, local Freemason Eugene Matthias demonstrated how much fat children would consume if you had two packets of crisps a day for a term and how much sugar you would eat by drinking two fizzy drink a day for a term. 

All the teachers said this was a fantastic way to teach children about eating healthy, especially the amount of sugar in fizzy drinks and fats in foods. 

And it was also a great way to raise awareness of Freemasonry in Buckinghamshire and the fantastic charity and community with take place across the county.
