Enjoying a visit to Tesco to experience “Farm to Fork” and take the healthy food trail. The children found a rainbow of fruit and vegetables, created their own breakfast cereal and also learned that at their age they should eat no more than 6 cubes of sugar each day – a small chocolate bar contains 5 cubes of their allowance.

Learning about food in Reception this week. We have been mashing peas to improve our fine motor skills and feeding the hungry caterpillar so we can sort healthy and unhealthy foods. We have also been writing as though we were a carrot, making healthy plates of food in the creative area as well as many more continuous provision activities.
