In Living and Learning, we discussed the importance of a balanced diet and the advice of ‘five-a-day’. We enjoyed this learning outside during a circle time!
Circle times are a great time in the week to have honest, open and mature discussions in a different seating arrangement!
In our circle time, we talked not only about a balanced diet and ‘five-a-day’ but about the different food groups and the benefits they provide our bodies!
Did you know:
- You should only have 150ml of fruit juice a day?
- If you drink a fruit smoothie, it only counts as one portion no matter how many different fruits are in there?
- Dried fruit should be eaten as a dessert rather than a snack to prevent tooth decay?
- It is healthier to buy tinned fruit in juices rather than syrup?
Help at home: Visit the NHS website which gives more information about portion sizes and healthy choices. Then, with this knowledge, why not try to plan, prepare and enjoy a healthy meal which contributes towards your five-a-day.
