Council has also provided all primary schools in the municipality with Apple Slinky machines to increase fruit consumption of students and provide our children with a positive attitude towards eating fruit. Qualitative data shows that the schools have found an increase in consumption of apples (whilst at school) by children of all age groups. The Slinky Machine has made fruit consumption a fun activity for students.
