Bolton School Year 3 boys have the H Factor! The boys took
part in the healthy eating initiative run by the school catering
department, which saw the children making smoothies, researching
healthy food options using netbooks, taking part in quizzes and
sampling a range of foods.
Over the course of the afternoon children had the chance to
choose fruits from a selection to make and taste their own
smoothie, which they then got to blend together by pedalling as
fast as they could on the Smoothie Bike! They were introduced to
plates of unusual and exotic fruits, vegetables and spices
including dragon fruit, star fruit, passion fruit, ginger,
mint and sage, and were encouraged to touch, smell and
taste the different foods.
Pupils used netbooks to take part in food quizzes and were
taught about the 'eatwell plate' which shows them the importance of
including all the main food groups to maintain a healthy diet, and
how much of the diet should be made up of each food group.
