Market Fresh Day – October 2013

Last week two ladies from the Market Fresh program came to our school and taught all the grades about eating healthy fruits and vegetables.

We learnt about how we should eat a variety of different colours because there are different vitamins in each. We learnt you should try and eat the skin on fruits and vegetables because a lot of vitamins and minerals are in the skin. Your taste buds are changing continuously across our life time. There were 5 different types of capsicums: green, yellow, red, white, purple. All of them start growing green, except for the purple.

After the visitors told us about different fruits and vegetables we got to try lots of different types such as:
– yellow capsicum
– asparagus
– cucumber
– carrot
– apples
– bananas
– pears
– avacado dip
– tomatoes
– oranges
– cantalope/rockmelon

What is your favourite fruit or vegetable?
Have you ever tried purple or white capsicum?
Has the Market Fresh program ever come to your school before?
