Squirrels Class Look at Healthy Eating

Squirrels class have taken part in a range of activities to promote healthy eating. As a discussion starter we shared the text “Handa’s surprise” and looked at real fruits from the story, these were then available to learn with in the role play home corner.

We moved on to making our own healthy sandwiches, choosing from cheese, ham and cucumber, great care and concentration was demonstrated as we spread our own butter and applied the filling of our choice.

Our group time activity was to consider what is a healthy breakfast? Using pipe cleaners, we threaded on hooped cereal to create bird feeders, developing our fine motor skills and hand/eye coordination.

Then for snack we tried toast with banana and raisins, “Ooh I love toast, and bananas.”
