Community Champion Stephen helps with healthy eating lessons
The Community Champion at Boston Asda store recently visited the town's Staniland Academy to visit three Year 3 classes and three classes in Year 4. The purpose of the visits was to discuss the importance of getting the balance right between the energy we put into our bodies by eating and drinking, and the energy our bodies use by maintaining active lifestyles. One of the tasks was to teach that not only is it important that we eat the right kinds of foods, but also to teach children the different portion sizes needed for adults and children. By playing a game using the pictured materials, the children were encouraged to work out the portions for a roast dinner. Just like Goldilocks in the famous fairytale, they didn't want to choose too little, or too much but find the amount of food that was just right to help maintain a healthy lifestyle and also help reduce food waste.
