KG 1 pupils had a practical demonstration on eating a balanced diet on Friday, 18th March 2022.
The kids learnt that a balanced diet is made up of food from the six food groups, such as starch carbohydrates, fruits and vegetables, proteins, dairy, healthy fats and calcium rich food. Each provides the range of vitamins and minerals our bodies need to function efficiently. A balanced diet reduces the risk of diseases such as diabetes, obesity and high pressure.
The kids study the importance of eating a balanced diet.
The kids were taught that eating a balanced diet is important because it supplies the nutrients our body needs to work effectively. Without balanced nutrition, your body is mostly prone to disease, infection, fatigue and low performance, also those who do not get enough healthy foods may face growth and developmental problems, poor academic performance, and frequent infections.
The ingredients the children used for the practical.
- Whole-grain (white rice)
