Here is a list of relevant organisations that are offering nutrition and physical activity advice during this difficult time.

- Food – A Fact of Life (FFL)
The FFL Classroom hosts a wide range of resources, covering seven learning approaches: everyday learning; finding out and exploring; being active; worksheets; interactive quizzes and activities; being creative (through writing, arts and crafts) and cooking. The FFL Classroom also provides tips and best practice advice for parents and carers.
Resources focus on key food themes within curriculum areas, such as where food comes from, cooking, and healthy eating, but also offer a range of opportunities for cross-curricular (interdisciplinary) learning. Many resources and activities use food as a vehicle to provide engaging learning via subjects such as: numeracy, literacy, humanities, science, PSHE/health and wellbeing, D&T, religious education, and art.
The FFL Classroom will provide an activity or resource for every day, from now until 1 September 2020, with new sets of resources being launched weekly throughout the coming months. There is a section aimed at 3-5 year olds.
