Living and learning: healthy eating

Thursday 11 May 2023

Over the last two weeks we have been learning about healthy eating in living and learning lessons. We have looked at the eat well plate which is a brilliant way of representing how much of eat food type we need for a healthy balanced diet. There is a picture of the eat well plate below with some added hints to keep a healthy lifestyle.

We also talked about how we could swap certain foods to make our breakfasts healthier.

Here are some of our ideas.

Swap the cereal for porridge or a cereal without chocolate.
Use butter or jam instead of chocolate spread.
You could drink milk or juice instead.
Maybe you could add in some fruit, like a banana.

Help at home by looking at the Eatwell guide together and thinking about any improvements that could be made. This may be having an extra vegetable a day, trying a new fruit or vegetable, switching to brown bread or pasta or having a healthier snack after school.
