Bwyd a ffitrwydd / Food and fitness

Pam mae gwaith ar fwyd a ffitrwydd yn elfen bwysig o’r cwricwlwm yma yn YGG Llwynderw?

 

  • Mae deiet gytbwys a lefelau priodol o weithgarwch corfforol yn bwysig i iechyd da ac maen nhw’n hanfodol er mwyn i blant a phobl ifanc dyfu a datblygu’n iach. Gallan nhw helpu i gynnal pwysau corff iach a gwella iechyd a lles corfforol a meddyliol.
  • Gall diffyg maeth a diffyg gweithgarwch corfforol ymysg plant a phobl ifanc arwain at nifer o broblemau iechyd yn cynnwys gorbwysedd neu ordewdra. Mae pobl ifanc, yn ystod eu plentyndod a’u glasoed, yn gwneud dewisiadau ffordd-o-fyw pwysig sy’n  rhag-gyflyru risgiau iechyd ar ôl cyrraedd llawn dwf. O ganlyniad, mae'n hollbwysig i blant YGG Llwynderw cael eu harwain tuag at ymddygiad iach tra byddan nhw yn yr ysgol.
  • Mae’n ymddangos bod y maeth a gaiff babanod a phlant yn effeithio ar iechyd yn ddiweddarach yn eu bywydau. Mae deiet llawer o blant a phobl ifanc yn annigonol. Nid ydyn nhw’n bwyta llawer o ffrwythau a llysiau ond maen nhw’n bwyta llawer o fyrbrydau sy’n uchel mewn braster, siwgr a halen. Hefyd, mae diffygion fitaminau a mwynau (fitamin D a haearn) yn gyffredin mewn rhai grwpiau. Mae ymyrraeth gynnar yn bwysig gan fod arferion bwyta yn gallu cael eu sefydlu pan fydd plant yn ifanc.

  • Mae deiet gytbwys mewn plentyndod a’r glasoed yn debygol o leihau’r risg o broblemau deintyddol. Er bod rhai agweddau o iechyd deintyddol wedi gwella dros y blynyddoedd diwethaf, mae anghydraddoldebau ar draws Cymru o safbwynt iechyd y geg, yn gysylltiedig ag amryw o ffactorau, yn cynnwysamddifadedd cymdeithasol a ffordd o fyw.

  • I blant a phobl ifanc mae’r dystiolaeth yn dangos bod 60 munud o weithgarwch y rhan fwyaf o ddiwrnodau yn help iddyn nhw dyfu a datblygu’n iach. Mae tystiolaeth gref y byddai gan boblogaeth fwy egnïol a mwy ffit gyfraddau is o ordewdra, clefyd cardiofasgwlaidd, diabetes math 2 a rhai canserau, a llai obroblemau iechyd meddwl.

  • Mae nifer o ymchwilwyr wedi nodi gwell ymddygiad a pherfformiad yn yr ysgol ar ôl cael pryd iach a hydradu digonol.

 

Why is work on food and fitness an important part of the curriculum here at YGG Llwynderw?

 

  • A balanced diet and appropriate levels of physical activity are important for good health, and for children and young people they are essential for healthy growth and development. They can help to maintain a healthy body weight and enhance physical and mental health and well-being.
  • Poor nutrition and lack of physical activity in children and young people can lead to a number of health problems including being

    overweight or obese. During childhood and adolescence, young people make important lifestyle choices that predetermine health risks at adult age. Consequently, it is vital for the children here at YGG Llwynderw to be guided towards healthy behaviours while they are at school.

  • Nutrition in infants and children appears to affect health in later life.  The diets of many children and young people are inadequate, with low intakes of fruit and vegetables and high intakes of snacks that are high in fat, sugar and salt. In addition, vitamin and mineral deficiencies (vitamin D and iron) are common in certain groups. Early intervention is important as eating habits can become established in early childhood.

  • A balanced diet in childhood and adolescence is likely to reduce the risk of dental problems. While aspects of dental health have improved in recent years, there are inequalities throughout Wales in oral health, associated with a variety of factors including social deprivation and lifestyle.

  • For children and young people evidence indicates that 60 minutes of activity on most days will help them achieve healthy growth and development. There is strong evidence that a more active and fitter population would have lower rates of obesity, cardiovascular

    disease, type 2 diabetes, some cancers and fewer mental health problems. The proportion of young people meeting recommended activity levels is worryingly low and declines between the ages of 11 and 15.

  • A number of researchers have noted improved behaviour and school performance following a healthy meal and adequate hydration.

BRECWAST / BREAKFAST

 
Mae brecwast wedi ei gydnabod bellach fel pryd pwysicaf y dydd ac mae tystiolaeth yn awgrymu bod plant sy'n cael y cyfle i fwyta brecwast iach a maethlon cyn dechrau'r diwrnod ysgol yn fwy tebygol o gyflawni eu potensial llawn.
 
Mae’r Fenter Brecwast am Ddim Llywodraeth Cymru yn rhoi cyfle i blant gael brecwast iach am ddim yn yr ysgol bob dydd mewn ysgolion cynradd yng Nghymru. Am ragor o wybodaeth am ein Clwb Brecwast, cysylltwch â'n tîm gweinyddol:

Breakfast has long been recognised as the most important meal of the day and evidence suggests that children who have the opportunity to eat a healthy and nutritious breakfast prior to the start of the school day are more likely to achieve their full potential.


The Welsh Assembly Government Primary School Free Breakfast Initiative gives children in primary schools in Wales the opportunity to have a free, healthy breakfast in school each day. For further information about our Breakfast Club please contact our administration team:

Cadwch y bocs yn oer – er mwyn osgoi gwenwyn bwyd

Dylai bocsys bwyd gael eu cadw’n oer – yn ddelfrydol defnyddiwch focs bwyd wedi’i inswleiddio gyda phaciau rhew neu garton o sudd wedi’i rewi er mwyn ei gadw’n oer. Os bydd brechdanau’n cael eu paratoi y noson gynt, storiwch nhw yn yr oergell dros nos. 

 

Keep it cool – avoid food poisoning 

Lunchboxes should be kept cool – ideally use an insulated lunchbox with ice packs or a frozen carton of juice to keep it cool. If sandwiches are prepared the previous evening, always store them in a fridge overnight.
