Gidea Park Health Day

26 Jan Gidea Park Health Day

8 classes of very excited KS1 children awaited our arrival at Gidea Park Primary School.   Even those as young as Reception age knew about the minimum 5 portions a day of fruit & vegetables, which was a good way to lead into helping them determine ‘me-size’ portions using grapes and comparing hand sizes.   They all enjoyed learning about a balanced diet using the Eatwell Plate and were amazed at the amount of sugar in a bottle of Coca Cola, but the bit they were all waiting for was the Smoothie Bike! Each child peeled and sliced bananas to add to our frozen fruit, ready to be blended by the fast-pedalling teachers. Everyone got a taster drink and went off with a big smile.   It was a fun day and we hope to be back soon for the KS2 years.
