Mad Food Science Incursion

posted 12 Oct 2017, 22:01 by Michelle Virgona
The Mad Food Science Program supports the Curriculum and is a fun, interactive educational incursion, that uses quirky experiments to get children to understand key health messages. The main objectives of the program are to teach children: 
• to take responsibility for what they put in their mouth 
• to taste food with their tongue, not with their eyes 
• why their body needs a rainbow of fruit and vegetables 
• how to read food packets, and why real food is so much better 
• how food can affect your their mood, concentration and behaviour 
• how to start positive conversations about healthy food at home 
• to make better choices together with parents – both at home and in their lunch boxes

We look forward to their visit next week which will be attended at various times by all classes.
