What is a healthy diet?

Eating a healthy diet is not about strict limitations, its about eating food that you simply love to eat- but in moderation. It’s about feeling great, having more energy, improving your health, and boosting your mood. 

This week, the nursery and reception children have learnt all about keeping healthy in various different ways. We began the week by learning all about the healthy eating food plate.


We then had a go at naming the different parts in the food plate and finding food in our potion lab to match each section on the plate. 


During our snack, lunch and afternoon tea sessions, we looked closely at our food in our lunch boxes and had a go at identifying where each food item belonged on the food plate.

During our science lesson, we had a go at sorting food into 2 categories- healthy and unhealthy groups. We were surprised at some of the items!

Finally, during our cooking session, we used what we learnt about healthy eating to create a healthy meal for Percy the Park Keeper. We remembered to use the butter knife correctly to cut vegetables carefully. We also remembered to listen and follow instructions given by our teachers. Look at the pictures below. Do you think Percy will enjoy what we have made?
