Life Education - Food and Nutrition

Our new topic for this term is food and nutrition. We went to the Life Education Caravan. First of all we learnt about what our body needs to stay healthy and happy. We explored the ways in which we can contribute to our own health and wellbeing. This included: good nutrition, sleep, hygiene, physical exercise, and keeping ourselves safe. We then learnt about why we need to eat different kinds of foods to stay healthy and to give us energy. We explored why we need to eat a variety of foods every day, and how eating a range of nutrients from different food groups gives us the energy we need to live and grow. Finally we learnt about how it is important to understand what we are eating, and what it will do for our body. We discussed where our food comes from, and the different ways in which it affects our health.
