A special royal visitor joined pupils at The Royal School in Windsor on Wednesday as part of the British Nutrition Foundation’s (BNF) Healthy Eating Week.
Princess Anne, who is a patron of the BNF, visited the school in Windsor Great Park and chatted to pupils about the importance of eating well.
The students also took part in an orienteering food trail around the grounds of the school.
Professor Judith Buttriss, director general at the BNF, said: “Everyone was delighted with how the morning went.
“The Princess Royal toured the school and talked with the children about their BNF Healthy Eating Week activities, making vegetable kebabs in ‘food maths’, tasting unusual fruits, cooking, learning about dairy cows, and food orienteering in the school garden.
“The visit ended with a special assembly during which the children talked about what they were learning and why healthy eating and being active are so important.”
The Royal School is one of more than 6,800 schools across the UK taking part in the healthy initiative.
