Alistair Gill from Knowsley Schools for Health, trained the Health Champions to become Junior Chefs. The children: learned to chop and cut fruit and vegetables safely using the claw and bridge methods, studied the sugar content of various sweets and drinks (which shocked us all) and looked at the benefits to our hearts of taking regular exercise.
We made healthy strawberry and banana smoothies with Reception, Year 1 and Year 2. The children cut the fruit using the bridge and claw safety methods for chopping. We all all tasted the smoothies and most enjoyed them!
