Healthy Eating on a Budget!

Today, we continued our healthy eating.

Our teachers showed us how easy it is to eat tasty, nutritious food

without breaking the budget!

Again, we fed 50 people for just over $50.00.

There was plenty of food and we all returned for seconds and thirds.

Some people even returned for fourths!!

This is what we ate today:

Firstly, pasta bolognese.

These are the ingredients:

ONIONS, GARLIC, HERBS, MINCED BEEF,

TOMATOES FOR A RICH SAUCE AND PASTA.

ALL TOGETHER IT MADE FOR A HEARTY, FILLING, TASTY MEAL.

The final product was delicious!

The second meal we had was Fried Rice. It wasn’t just ordinary fried rice.

It contained so many ingredients.

It included rice, prawns, chicken, bacon, egg, spring onions, sausage, and broccoli.

These two meals included the three main food groups which make up a balanced plate:

CARBOHYDRATES, PROTEIN AND VEGETABLES.

We were very full after this meal.

These two meals were very easy to prepare.

They were filling, healthy and nutritious.

They were also not as expensive as one might think.

WHAT DID WE LEARN FROM THIS TODAY?

We learnt that it is cheaper and more nutritious to eat at home!

It isn’t that difficult to prepare healthy food!

BENEFITS OF HEALTHY EATING – A WELL BALANCED PLATE

As part of our healthy eating topic, we designed some plates for art.

We piled them full of proteins, carbohydrates, vegetables and salads.

We used crepe paper to design the food on our plates.

We enjoyed completing this art activity.

When we finished, we wrote our poetry, to reflect what we had learnt! 

We hope you enjoy reading our poetry, and viewing our art.

Don’t forget to watch the video on the benefits of eating fruit and vegetables

at the start of this slide show.

 

Healthy Food Choices

Our first week of Term 3 has been a busy one.

We have spent a lot of time discussing healthy food choices.

What should we put on our plates?

How do I balance the types of foods I put on my plate?

We hope you enjoy watching our first Voki Presentation.

PLEASE BE PATIENT AS THE VOKI LOADS ON EACH PAGE. 

LISTEN CAREFULLY.
