Breakfast time!

This activity was performed totally online. The 3rd Grade pupils learned about healthy snacks, how to make them and why they are good for them. They had to separate unhealthy snacks from the healthy ones and plan their own breakfast.

After that the pupils were asked to design their own breakfast, make it, describe what was used and take a photo. All the photos and descriptions were collected and compiled in one book published online.–vSY4/m2UZikRERKqZi7pRXDYFNg

Go! Slow! No!

You are what you eat.

In order to find out which food is good and nutritious for teenagers two classes took part in a mini-project Go!Slow!No!. The 4th class started from learning vocabulary. The children, split into groups of three, worked with food cards. They were supposed to find between them the ones which contained carbs, proteins, vitamins and fats. They also recognized and discussed the roles of all the main macronutrients and vitamins. Afterwards, each group received one index card with the information about them and had to present it in a graphic way on the poster.

  • Categorizing all the food cards in 3 basic nutrients group  
  • Presenting on the plate what the accurate proportions of the main nutrients groups are: 65 % carbohydrates, 25%proteins and 20% fats
  • Making ‘vitamin boards’ and presenting food which is particularly rich in them
  • Drawing a table with ‘don’t worry, go ahead’ food, ‘carefully with that’ food and ‘under no condition’ food
  • Building a healthy fit person out of food cards and  obese, consisting of fast food one.

Additionally, we measured the content of sugar in the most common snacks and drinks. To visualize the amount of saccharine we presented it using sugar cubes and displayed bags with packages, sugar cubes and measurement calculations on the board in the hall. It did attract the attention. Probably also some thinking. Below, the link to the materials and worksheets used during the workshops.

Eat healthy! Start from now!

We started realizing the project from teaching the youngest ones how to switch to healthy food. The dietician, Małgorzata Bellwon showed the pupils from preparatory class how to cut down on processed snacks, eat balanced food, stick to the schedule of 5 meals a day (the 5- finger rule ) and understand the food pyramid. What they learn as children, they will remember as adults. Unless the rules change.
