We were lucky to have the managers from Hampshire Caterers came into school for a day. They talked to us about making healthy choices and the importance of reducing our fats and sugar to ensure we keep our insides healthy.
We found out how much sugar was in sugary drinks – we were all amazed! We found out about what carbohydrates and proteins are and how they help our bodies store energy.
We also found out what a portion size of fruit is and how to measure it.
At the end of the session there was a quiz!
We had fruit kebabs and smoothies to taste delicious natural fruit drinks.
At the end of the day we had Ready, Steady Cook. Mrs Weaver was in the Red Team and she cooked a very healthy chicken stir fry.
Mrs Goodey was on the Green Team and she cooked a healthy vegetarian stir fry. We all cheered for our team.
The School Council tasted the food and then had to vote for their favourite. The Red Team won!
What a brilliant day! We all learnt such a lot.
