Today we had a special visitor in school – Mr Tatterson from Tuxford Academy’s PE department. He has been sharing with us the importance of a healthy lifestyle and making positive choices with our food choices and swapping some of our unhealthy snacks for a more healthy option.
Did you know there is more sugar in a bowl of Frosties than on a sugar donut?
A bowl of Frosties has more than 100% of a child’s recommended daily intake of sugar (RDA 16-18g per day).
I was very proud to hear some of the comments the pupils were making, demonstrating their understanding of a heathy lifestyle and the importance of a balanced diet. Here are some of the comments pupils make:
An apple a day keeps the doctor away – Ethan
You need to eat your 5 a day of fruit and vegetables – Niall
You need to exercise to keep healthy too – Charlotte
The only sugar that you should try to have is from fruit – Starla
If you have too much sugar your teeth and fall out – Jenson
You need to drink lots of water – Lewis
You need energy from food too – Arthur
