St Mark's Primary School family adviser Andrea Davis is spurring youngsters on with a new scheme to make their day healthier.
As part of the Healthy School Plus project, the school will start to take pupils on trips to Weston Woods to create an outdoor learning experience.
Children have also been chosen to work with Miss Davis on how to improve their attitudes to food. They have taken part in activities around themes of 'balanced diet' and have been keeping their own food diaries.

The 'munch bunch group' has also taken part in an apple day and shown people how to do different things with the fruit. The children plan to plant an apple tree in the grounds with the help of Homebase staff.
The final part of the current initiative has been centred on peer mediation. A group of year five students has taken up an eight-week training programme to show pupils how to support younger children in the playground.

Mrs Davis said: "This work is designed to focus on the pupils' healthy minds, attitudes and general well-being, as well as the more traditional aspects of healthy eating and exercise."
The Healthy Schools Plus project was launched earlier this month and is funded by a number of health-related organisations.
Banwell, Christ Church and Locking primary schools, St Martin's and Yeo Moor junior schools, Wyvern and Worle community schools and Broadoak Mathematics and Computing College are also taking part in the regional programme.
