Harold and Healthy Food...

We were very excited today to be invited to visit Andrea and her friend Harold the Giraffe in the Life Education Mobile Classroom.  This is Harold...

We learnt a poem to help us remember the different food groups:

This food makes us healthy (fruit and veges)...
This food makes us go (breads, cereals, rice and pasta)...
This food helps our bones and teeth (milk and milk products)...
This food helps us grow (meat, fish, nuts, eggs, dried peas and beans).

And we were introduced to the healthy food pyramid and the importance of a balanced diet:

We talked about nutritional goodness of the different food groups and how our bodies need protein, carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals, fibre, water and fats to work well.

We are all looking forward to going back for another session in the next couple of days...
