The Move and Learn project aims to get children active and teaches the importance of healthy eating.
The Move and Learn project is a national school-based educational programme for children aged between 9-10 that has been developed by the EFL Trust and Ferrero.
By combining six weeks of practical sporting sessions with classroom sessions, the programme encourages physical activity, promotes nutritional education and builds awareness of the importance of a healthy diet and active lifestyle.
The programme content is developed by nutritional and educational experts in line with the recommendations in the Government’s eat well plate and the National Curriculum.
To date, the programme has been delivered locally by 26 football club trusts in 1,495 schools, with over 80,000 children impacted.
A spokesperson from Ferrero said: “Our partnership with the EFL Trust and all our member clubs has gone from strength to strength in recent years, and we are proud that together we have inspired thousands of children to discover new ways to enjoy a healthy and active lifestyle.”
‘’The EFL Trust is the perfect partner; football clubs are at the heart of their communities and engage and inspire people from all generations – and this is exactly what we want to do with Joy of Moving in the UK.”
