We always talk about eating healthy food with the children, but many of the little ones upon questioning, are not really clear just what food is healthy.  It's even a bit of a grey area for us adults...fruit yoghurts, homemade pizza and muffins - where do they fit in?   Fruits and veges are a good start.  So our main goal this week was to:
  • name a variety of common fruits and veges
  • identify a fruit v vege (quite tricky it seems)
  • think about what food is treat food and what food is healthy food
We tied this all in with The Very Hungry Caterpillar story. 

Some of our activities included:
  • finding books both fiction and non fiction featuring healthy eating
  • tasting veges and creating a bar graph of our favourite then interpreting the data 
  • PPT on common fruits / veges and treat food 
  • making fruit salad using fruit 'counters'. 
  • fruit and vegetable prints
  • making a class story 'The Very Healthy Caterpillar'
  • making fruit kebabs
