Living and Learning: healthy eating

Tuesday 16 May 2023

Over the past few weeks, Year 3 have been learning about healthy eating and how to make healthy choices regarding food.

As a school, we promote a happy and healthy lifestyle. Eating and drinking healthily doesn’t necessarily mean only eating fruit, broccoli and peas but it means having a balanced diet.

As part of our lesson, we discussed this pie chart called the Eatwell Guide. It shows us how much of eat food group we should aim to be eating in a day.

Aiming to have at least five pieces of fruit and vegetables a day means that our body is getting the important nutrients and vitamins that it needs.

Help at home by challenging your child and see how many different fruit and vegetables they can name!
