The children in 5th and 6th class have been learning about different ways to keep ourselves healthy and have been focusing on the food we eat and the impact it has on our bodies. We were so lucky to have an amazing expert, Majia O’Reilly, come into our class and fill us with loads of interesting information, guidance and tips on what we should be eating in order to be as healthy as possible.
We learned about different elements that work together to help keep us healthy and discovered how each group of food helps our bodies, in different ways, to function well. It was interesting to see how much sugar is hidden in some foods and how some simple changes we can make to our diet can have a massive impact on our health.
Just like Skittles, (but without the sugar of course!) we should aim to eat the rainbow everyday through a variety of fruits and vegetables
We had a good look at our partitioning of our food groups and saw how important it is to have fruit and veg taking up the largest portion. We are going to try and make sure to have a variety of foods in our meals as well as paying attention to the amount of each food group we have for each meal.
