Healthy Eating

This week, Reception have been reading the story of The Very Hungry Caterpillar. It got us thinking about what it means to be healthy.

Here's what some of the children thought...

"Strawberries are so juicy and good for you"

"Apples give you lots of energy so you can run around for a long time"

"Meat is good for you, it makes you strong"

"I eat apples. They make my teeth cleaner"

"You should eat vegetables and exercise so that your body gets healthy and your brain get strong"

We had a great discussion and the children were very knowledgeable about healthy foods. But here's a question...

What if shops only sold lettuce? Would you still be healthy?

Happy thinking philosophers!
