“Last night I returned to see my Local Brownie unit that my children attend , some amazing ladies run this unit and it’s my little way of saying thank you .

On arrival 20 young Brownies were waiting to see what I had in store for them , they had only been told to bring a food item in a packet . I asked them if they knew what my job was , they thought I just got people fit and really listened when I told them I help people choose healthier options in life.

We started our evening with a fun HIIT workout to elevate our hearts with simple movements they were all familiar with , even the Brownie Leaders joined in .

The Brownies spilt up and worked in their ‘Sixes ‘ , they were given the task to come up in groups and silently decide 4 items they that believed had the least amount of sugar in. They wrote down their items and we added up the grams of sugar.

I followed this up with a very basic mini quiz to see what they knew , including how would they know if they were dehydrated ,  I wanted to highlight how important drinking was for lot’s of reasons .

Snack time always goes down well with all the children , this time clean chocolate orange brownies were made , whilst they ate these we  talked about our quiz and our 4 items of food they had chosen , they were amazed at how much sugar was in the supposedly healthy fruit bar ! Sugar is hidden in so many foods and I wanted to highlight to the children how bad too much sugar is and how cooking from scratch is the best way to know it is healthy.

To end my visit we did a stretching and quietening down session concentrating on relaxing ! It worked… finally after a very fun noisy session they were laying still as can be , thankyou Brownies for letting me join you .”
