We have been investigating healthy eating as part of the Change 4 Life 'Be Food Smart'campaign. Children have been amazed at how much sugar is in some of their favourite foods and drinks. We have created our own healthy plates and had lots of chat in the room about the choices we could make. The club always tries to provide a healthy balance of food and the children are now much more aware of why we do it. Carrot snacking has never been so popular! Later in the year we will harvest some of our own club-grown food and link this back to making good choices - can we still have ice cream with the strawberries?
