Last week at Dragonfly's Early Learning at Coolum Beach, the subject turned to Food Choices. They were very interested in the book, Lunchbox Food Choices by Chris Butterworth
This story gave them a little information to then set those little imaginations to really run wild
They discussed amongst themselves the incorporation of a picnic in the Kindy yard and set about to make it happen
They went about collecting their healthy foods. They then sat together and started a very avid discussion on what they thought that the different food groups were. They discussed the need to incorporate proteins, fats, grains, water, carbohydrates, (and of course, the conversation did turn to treats to see if they could work out how to fit them in!!!)
They then sat together with their peers at lunchtime and had a look in their own lunchboxes to see what they contained. They chatted with us about what they had and what they thought their parents could pack differently.
It's all about learning about the food that we eat in very easy stages.
