In an effort to help reduce the incidence of childhood obesity, a group of 4th and 5th form students of Springer Memorial Secondary School have developed a food business offering healthy fruit snacks.
Spokesperson Christina Singh said that if fruits were presented in ways that appealed to children, they would be more inclined to eat them.
Their display was one of many at the Small Business Association’s youth forum and showcase held at the Savannah Hotel, Hastings, Christ Church, yesterday.
The Springer girls served fruits in cups and on kebabs, and also made refreshing smoothies. (SB)
