Event - Year 5 Inspire Workshop

17 November 2015

On Tuesday 17th November Year 5 invited their parents to come into school so that they could all learn more about adopting a healthier lifestyle by choosing healthier options to eat.

Tesco employees from Quinton supplied all foods and led the workshop with Mrs Greatrex. The workshop began with a quiz about the sugar content in various foods. Mrs Greatrex supplied some interesting and shocking facts about the ‘hidden’ ingredients in certain foods.

Year 5 then chose different fruits and yoghurts to mix into a healthy option choice. Some children enjoyed the tasting of their new creation, but others much preferred their fruit kebab which they designed, prepared, made and then ate themselves! The children tasted many fruits they had not tried before and expressed an interest in the more ‘exotic’ fruits.

Hopefully Year 5 will continue to try out new foods so that they can make healthier decisions when helping their parents to prepare different options for snacks. Year 5 pupils and parents had a lot of fun preparing their foods.

It was great to see so many dads at this workshop - thank you all parents for your support.
