The PhunkyFoods Programme (PFP), launched in 2005 by Purely Nutrition, teaches primary children key messages related to healthy eating and physical exercise in a light hearted and fun manner through art, drama, music, play and practical experience with food. It aims to enhance pupil performance, increase concentration, and improve behaviour, motivation and self-esteem. The overarching aims of the research were to evaluate the effectiveness of the PFP in terms firstly of its implementation in schools, and secondly of its impact on pupil outcomes.
