Healthy Eating!


The children have been learning about healthy eating and why eating healthy food is good for your body.
A healthy and well-balanced diet is important for children’s physical and cognitive development, helping them grow and flourish!¬†Using both real foods and toy foods, the children used their knowledge of different foods to decide which are healthy and which are unhealthy, and separated them on our eat well plate.¬†The children enjoyed learning about which foods are good for your body, and what happens when you eat healthy foods. They also learned about the different colours of foods, and using the knowledge gained, the children were able to identify healthy foods from each colour we talked about.
After the children worked together to sort foods into healthy and unhealthy, they all received their own fruit bowl to colour in and they were able to identify what colours the fruits are using their knowledge from real life. Using our new paints, the children then chose their own colours for their fruit and bowls and decorated them!
Lots of love,
Leigh and the team xxx
