Food and Our Body

We looked at the different food groups today. The children worked together, sharing a ball of blue tac and pulled bits off to stick on the matching pictures within each food group.

Good nutrition is an important part of leading a healthy lifestyle. The children enjoyed learning how the different food groups benefited their bodies. Nurturing healthy eating habits involves so many factors; like using snack and meal times as teachable moments to make wise food choices; teaching children where their food comes from; being a good role model; and getting them involved.

One little boy spoke about Daddy using his Sugar Swap app in the supermarket to see how many cubes of sugar were in his yoghurt.
