Early school leavers

Eatright is an all-island food skills resource for teachers working with Early School Leavers.

Young people who leave school early are at risk of poor health.

Many have nutritionally poor diets and take little physical activity. safefood and FSA Northern Ireland have developed this resource with guidance from the ESL sector in both Northern Ireland and Republic of Ireland.
