"Health is a large word. It embraces not the body only, but the mind and spirit as well;...
and not today's pain or pleasure alone, but the whole being and outlook of a man."

Healthy Fun with Little Kids!

By admin

Had SO much fun this morning at McDowall Village “kindie”.  They are having May Healthy Month and invited me along to play some games and have some fun with the kids (and of course get them excited about eating fruit and vegetables, some might argue a mammoth task!). 

Well it was an absolute hit, one little guy bit into my broccoli!  (RAW, admittedly he spat it out afterwards but it took everything in my power to keep from laughing out loud.)  They were so enthusiastic and engaged, “These strawberries smell yummy, can we eat them”.  “Miss Lisa, can I have some apple!” “Can we eat this carrot please!!!” 

It was VERY exciting and I just wish I could have recorded it for all those sceptical mum’s and dad’s out there.  One of the teachers came out afterwards and said, wow, I have never seen 23 kids get so excited about apples before! (My secret weapon and dear friend I must admit, did most of the work!  apple_slinky_machine Mr apple slinky- introduced to me by my friend Gina!)  The kids loved it…
