Kids leading food environment improvements:­ Rhodes Street School, Hamilton

Sugary treats ruled out for primary school pupils >

An early-morning sugar fix and a Rhode Street School uniform don't go together any more, thanks to an agreement between the student council and several Dinsdale dairies.

When student council members realised how much some pupils were buying, they started asking local dairies not to sell sugary drinks and lollies to students in uniform either before or after school.

So far two have signed up - Irvine Street Dairy and K Road Dairy and Flowers, and the Blackburn Street Superette has agreed for mornings.
