Healthy Heart Poetry

The  healthy heart charity the Cardiovascular Research Trust established Healthy Heart Poetry in partnership with the Hippocrates Initiative.
The aim of the Healthy Heart Poetry initiative is to encourage interest among children of all ages in lifestyle that helps to keep the heart healthy.

We thought that writing poems on keeping the heart healthy and planning and writing heart healthy recipes would form excellent themes for a school lesson on a number of subject areas.

Entries are open for poems from children for consideration for the 2016 Healthy Heart Poetry anthology.
