This week I had the privilege to talk to the children and their parents at the play group in Scotts Head. This playgroup is arranged by the community organisation Lifetime Connect and run by Sharon and Heidi.
Me and the children started with a talk about the five food groups while we were making our own food circle together. This way we could talk about why we should include the foods in the food groups in our daily life. We talked about how these foods help our bodies in different kind of ways and which favourites the children had.
After some time with the children we had a more adult discussion. Me and the parents talked about how children get influenced by their parents e.g. if adults eat their vegetables, children are more likely to pick them up as well. We also talked about the importance to make mealtimes a pleasant and peaceful time were everyone sits down and participates in conversations and eating.
Next time we will take a close look at food suitable for children’s lunch boxes, how their needs will change when they start pre-school and kindergarten. Me and the children will do activities around their favourite meals and create our own food plates with paper and crayons, plus more.
Looking forward to seeing you all again, thanks for having me!
