One of the main aims of the Pabulum nutrition mission is to give school children an interest and keenness for healthy eating.
Vitamins & minerals are in the food we eat, they are very good for you & help to keep you healthy & strong. It is very important that we eat lots of these vitamins & minerals to keep fighting fit.
That’s why we have created the Healthy Bunch. These are Pabulum's very own crusading cartoon characters. The six farmyard friends work together as an interactive and informative team; to raise young people’s awareness of the vitamins and minerals found in our foods. You can find out more about the Healthy Bunch and discover their favourite foods by looking through the pictures below. Why not look at these with your child?
