Healthy Eating

To encourage the children to eat more healthily we have a fruit bowl in each of our classrooms. We encourage parents to ask there child to choose one piece of fruit a week to bring for the playschool fruit bowl, the fruit is chopped up and shared out at snack time. We usually get a great variety which enables children to try other fruits, some of which they may never have tried before.
