There are many tools within the j2e suite that can be used within Healthy Eating Week. You could design a poster, complete a survey about favourite healthy breakfasts or even make a short animation to encourage people to stay healthy in JIT. Using j2e5 the children could write up their favourite healthy recipes for a healthy eating cookbook that could be shared with parents, or they could design a poster to encourage children to have their 5 a day. Alternatively, you could make a Healthy Eating Week Tracker and get the pupils to complete these online.
