Kids strip food nude for health

STUDENTS at Bundamba State School ditched the plastic and became "foodie-nudies" when they took up the challenge to pack lunch without wrapping for National Nude Food Day.

Special education teacher Liz Acutt organised the event on Wednesday and said it was all about promoting healthy kids and a healthy environment.

"We've got them putting food into bags, next step is to get them to put food into containers that can be washed to reduce waste," Ms Acutt said.

Acting school principal Andrew Carter said Nude Food Day tied in with their Healthy Schools program.

"We also have a school breakfast program, where we feed the students on Tuesdays," Mr Carter said.
