As part of our PSHE unit this half term, we have been looking at how we can keep our bodies healthy. This week we focussed on what we put into it: food! The children (and staff!) wrote down everything they had eaten in the past 24 hours and summed up whether it was a healthy, balanced diet. If it was, great! If it wasn’t, how could they try to improve it? They anonymously shared their food diary with another member of the class who also analysed whether it would be deemed to be healthy, and how they could improve it.
We also discussed the idea of ‘treating yourself’, and that it’s okay to have a day or two here and there where we don’t necessarily get our five portions or fruit or veg, as long as generally speaking, we have a good diet!
The children really enjoyed the discussion, and it was wonderful to see so many with healthy relationships towards food and healthy eating!
