Fun and learning at preschool

The last couple of weeks have been super busy and fun. Lots of social learning has been going on both inside and outside. We have had a nutrition focus learning about Go, Grow and Glow foods. Ask your children about them and see if they can tell you what is in each category and what those foods do for you.

1. GO foods: GO foods give us energy (carbohydrate) to run, play and jump. GO foods are grain foods, like rice, oats and barley, and foods made
from grains such as bread, pasta and wholegrain cereals

2. GROW foods: GROW foods have lots of protein and calcium to help build strong teeth, bones and muscles. GROW foods mostly come from animals such as beef, lamb, chicken, fish, eggs, milk, cheese and yogurt. They also include nuts and legumes

3. GLOW foods: GLOW foods are fruits and vegetables that contain vitamins and minerals to keep us healthy. GLOW foods are all the colourful foods

The children have been making healthy plates of food or lunch boxes to try and tempt them to eat more of the food rainbow. Some of the children have also made healthy faces made up of bread, cheese, cucumber, tomato, capsicum, alfalfa
and sultanas. They were then able to try the food and eat what they wanted off their plate.
