To create a healthy dish

In this lesson, we join Mrs Garrard to learn about what constitutes a balanced, healthy diet. We learn about the different food groups and begin to understand the importance of including lots of fruit and vegetables in our diets. To support this, we create a healthy ‘rainbow fruit salad’. We think about the colours of the rainbow and name fruit for each colour which we then include in our fruit salad. You could extend this lesson by exploring what else our bodies need to stay fit and healthy.
