Fruit and Vegetable Party
In St. Angela's we've been taking part in the Food Dude initiative. We've been making a special effort to eat fruit and vegetables everyday to help keep us healthy and give us energy. Our new Food Dude lunchboxes are filled with lots of different fruit and vegetables for break and lunch.
In Junior and Senior Infants we had a Fruit and Vegetable party. We ate some of our favourite fruits and vegetables, like carrots, apples, pears and bananas, and had the chance to taste some new ones. We ate some lovely Irish strawberries, raspberries and blueberries. We tried some cherry tomatoes and grapes from vines and ate some lovely juicy fruits too, like mango, melon, oranges and pineapple. We had some peppers, nectarines, peaches, kiwi, plums, avocado, celery and even beetroot.
It was great to taste some more fruit and vegetables and have some more ideas for healthy foods for our lunches!
