A crèche owner in Tralee has started a ‘Sweets out for School’ campaign to try stop sweets/sugar being used as a reward for kids in school.
Kate Guerin, who is the owner of Sunflowers Childcare in Tralee, hopes that her campaign will persuade the next Minister for Education to stop the practice in schools of rewarding good behaviour or results with sugary treats.
In particular, Kate is hoping that as a result of the campaign, vending machines
with sugary goods will be removed from secondary schools and that teachers would be directed to not give sweets as rewards in schools.
