PUPILS at Dalziel High School proved they had a healthy outlook on life last week as the school hosted its 19th annual health fayre.

As usual the event featured a variety of activites, all aimed at promoting a healthier lifestyle, and the theme this year was ‘Switch it and Ditch it’ to encourage the idea of ‘ditching’ unhealthy foods, such as sweets and crisps as well as fizzy or sugary drinks and ‘switching’ them for water, fresh fruit and other 
healthier options.

The focus didn’t entirely end with food however - it also proposed the idea of stopping watching television and going on the computer quite as much and instead getting active, going a walk or participating in some form of exercise.
