Year 1 Fruit Salads

As part of our topic of changes in food over the years and healthy eating, year 1 have designed and prepared our own fruit salads.  

After exploring how popular foods and treats have changed over the years, we discussed food groups and what makes a healthy diet.

Did you know we should eat 5 portions of fruits and vegetables a day?

As a class we discovered there are not many of us that have 5 a day, so we thought it would be a good idea to design something that makes it easier to get our 5 a day and is also delicious at the same time!

First we discussed what our favourite fruits were.  Then we designed our recipe selecting up to 4 fruits and 1 fruit juice.  After that we had to carefully chop and prepare our fruit salads.  Finally we got to eat them!  

We think fruit salads are a great way to help get our 5 a day and would love to hear about children giving it a go at home too!
