Give children a healthy start in life
Update: We are developing a new programme for children and their families, and will be giving a refresh to your favourite Great Grub Club activities. In the meantime, our Great Grub Club website may not always be performing as well as it could be, and we apologise for that. We hope you still continue to use our Great Grub Club website.
The Great Grub Club is a free website for 4–11 year olds from World Cancer Research Fund. It teaches children about healthy eating and being active in a fun way.
As the UK’s leading cancer prevention charity, we know that helping children get a healthy start in life is really important. That’s why we created the Great Grub Club. By encouraging children to eat healthily and be physically active from an early age, we aim to help them develop healthy habits that could help reduce their risk of developing cancer later in life.
What’s on the Great Grub Club website?
The website offers a wealth of healthy lifestyle resources, including:
- healthy children's recipes
- active play ideas
- educational interactive games
- grow your own vegetables and fruit
- facts about food and fitness
For parents and carers
A range of fun activities for you to enjoy with your children.
Plenty of free resources to get your class learning about healthy lifestyles, including:
- lesson plans
- worksheets and puzzles
- healthy living school assembly
- interactive whiteboards
- guides for growing plants
