As part of the preschool program, Miss Jenny likes to include activities regarding lunch boxes preparation, nutrition and the importance of eating healthy.
Once the children are at “big school” is their responsibility to eat what they have in their lunch boxes. Children can learn a lot and appreciate the food when they are involved in the preparation of their own food.
As an introductory activity to this important topic, Miss Jenny showed them pictures of lunch boxes and talked to them about what foods give you energy, which ones have more vitamins,etc.
We will start with our lunch boxes preparation at school very soon with the preschoolers, so they can learn even more!
