We are all feeling the heat of the summer already, right? It is sunny during the day and we are left craving for something refreshing and cool. But, does that mean we gorge on unhealthy food? No! Fruits are the best!
Summer brings with it a variety of juicy and delicious fruits and that is why we thought it was the perfect time to introduce the Fruit Theme for our pre-schoolers. That is why we celebrated Fruit Day on 23rd February for our Nursery children.
The bright colours and juicy flavours of fruits always fascinate little ones. Thus, it became easy for us to tell them about the benefits of eating fruits. Fruits are packed with multiple nutrients that foster physical growth and sound mental health. The teachers encouraged children to bring fruits of their choice to celebrate this day. Then, they explained the common fruits and how they help our development. They spoke about the nutritional benefits that we extract from vitamin C, folic acid, fibre, and antioxidants. Through the session, the teachers stressed that children must make fruits a part of their daily diet, especially during the summer season.
The main aim of hosting Fruit Day was to steer children away from unhealthy options that can easily make them fall ill. It has been proven that activity-based learning is more effective than standard teaching particularly when we want to talk to our children about health and wellness. Since they were involved in the whole celebration and participated in multiple activities, they were more than willing to carry fruits in the lunch boxes moving forward.
We are thrilled that the day was such a success and that children were indeed impacted. It was a fantastic event about fantastic fruits!
