This week in IB we were discussing balanced meals and balanced nutrition. We began the discussion by sharing and drawing our favorite meals. Many of the kids are fans of burgers, pizza, French fries and spaghetti. We continued by then sharing and drawing a balanced meal. The kids noticed that balanced meals are healthy, but we LOVE the unhealthy meals!
Today we looked at a balanced plate and sorted food into the appropriate categories. The kids were told that they get to go grocery shopping, but they must buy balanced food. Most of them kept asking “where do Cheetos go?”
