On Friday Whole Foods are inviting local schools to get their own back on the grown-ups with Cream Pie throwing, plus they’ll be welcoming Kobi the Koala from Goody Good Stuff.

The Saturday will include Face-Painting, a Dog Show at 2pm and a Baking Competition at 3pm. Families can also book onto the Teddy Bear’s Picnic at 12.30pm for just £5 per child.

Both afternoons will be packed with garden games, a treasure hunt and the reappearance of the WFM giant deckchairs!

Whole Kids Foundation has been set up by Whole Foods Market with the mission to grow healthy kids through healthy eating awareness and nutrition education. In Cheltenham alone, the foundation has enabled Belmont School to be awarded a £2,540 garden grant to develop sensory learning and food growing for their autistic students. The foundation has also supported the Schools to Market scheme, enabling Coberley, Christchuch, Swindon Village and Belmont Schools to go on a seed to super market journey by growing, picking, cooking and selling chutney.
