Living and learning: I know the importance of a healthy diet

Tuesday 09 May 2023

We have been discussing the importance of a healthy diet. We looked at which food groups make up a balanced diet and how this helps us to maintain a healthy body. We understand that different foods can give us different vitamins and minerals, whilst others give us energy.

We also talked about what a healthy lunch box looks like when we are at school. We know that it should contain lots of fruit and vegetables and no sugary snacks. This also counts for drinks – water is best!

Help at home: What does your child’s packed lunch for school look like? Could you make some healthier choices? Maybe make one healthy swap this week.
