Healthy Breakfasts

Today Millie came to talk to us about healthy breakfasts. First she asked us what we learnt about last weeks session on healthy drinks.

First she asked us to tell her what we had for breakfast this morning.

Some answers were.... porridge, nutrigrain, weetbix, milo, toast with butter or jam, pancakes.

Millie had lots of breakfast foods. She asked us to put them in groups. The groups were;

Everyday, sometimes and occasional/never foods.

Here are some examples of these groups...

Everyday breakfasts - milk, weetbix, brown bread, porridge, left over home made dinners, fruit

Sometimes breakfasts - muesli, up and go,

Occasional breakfasts - cookies, chips, coke, coco-pops

See the photo above!!!

Our big idea this term is perseverance.

We watched these video clips and discussed how they showed perseverance and what that means.

Healthy Drinks

Millie from Project Energize came to school to talk to us about healthy drinks. We have to order the drinks form the least amount of sugar to the most amount of water.

Water has NO sugar and E2 has the most sugar - 20 teaspoons!!!!!

We sorted the drinks into... everyday drinks, sometimes drinks and occasional drinks.

Our thoughts....

Ariana "Raro has 4 teaspoons of sugar in it and that E2 has 20 teaspoons of sugar" "I was surprised the V has less sugar than coke!"

Lucas "Don't drink unhealthy drinks with lots of sugar in them:

Maia "I thought that V would have more sugar then E2 and coke would more sugar than E2" "I thought that flavoured water would be healthy but it has sugar in it"

Loren "I learnt that every time you breath you lose water from your body"

Kharma " Don't drink drinks that have caffeine in them at all!"

Mrs N "I like flavoured water and I am surprised how much sugar it has in it!"
