Hauora Day at Te Wharekura o Mauao
Te Wharekura o Mauao is a high school in Tauranga and they recently held a hauora day for the whole kura.
Heart Foundation Nutrition Advisor Jane Johnsson had this to say about the event:
"Hauora Day at Te Wharekura o Mauao was a great opportunity to engage with about 250 students from Year 7-13 and teachers at the kura. This event was run by the Ūkaipō (Health Promotion) Lead at a local PHO (primary health organisation) in Tauranga. We had 7-8 other providers present, including oral health promotion who I work with regularly.
I had about 80-100 students enter my competition, with most students underestimating the amount of salt in 2 minute noodles (1080mg) and seriously overestimating the percent of meat in a mince and cheese pie (15-19%)! "
