Sacred Heart Catholic Primary School Cabramatta students take part in the The Big Vegie Crunch each year in an attempt to have the most kids eating vegies simultaneously and to get kids excited about vegetables! According to the 2014-15 National Health Survey, 19 out of 20 Australian kids are not eating enough vegetables. These findings led to the school participating in the Big Vegie Crunch which is held as part of Vegetable Week. The experience aims to increase students’ knowledge, exposure and positive attitudes towards vegetables.
