This week in our PSHE sessions the children will be learning about healthy eating, exploring what healthy food is and why these food are important for our body.


Start by asking your child the following questions about healthy eating:

  • Why do we eat food?
  • What foods do we eat?
  • When do we get to choose what we eat?
  • Why do we need to eat different kinds of foods?


Introduce the children to the Eatwell Guide - formerly the Eatwell Plate. Point out the different food groups to your child and tell the names of each type of food.


Why are some sections of the Eatwell's guide plate bigger than others?

Do you know the job each type of food does for our bodies?

Which foods do we need to eat more of? Why?

Which foods do we need to eat less of? Why?



Ensure that your child understands that snacks high in sugar and fat can be eaten occasionally but it is healthiest not to have them too often. The key message to emphasise is that it's how much a person eats of these types of food that matters.   

Help Alan the alien by completing the healthy eating sorting game. Find the link to the game below:
