Nutri Safari!

Written by John H

On Tuesday March 7th, both Ms. McElligotts and Ms. J Carrolls 3rd classes, went on a Nutri Safari to Supervalue, Parkside, Portlaoise. The aim of the ‘Nutri Safari’ was to teach children all about healthy, nutritious foods and making good food choices. First the children met with a nutritionist, who explained the concept of the food pyramid to them. They were then brought on a tour of the supermarket and shown where to find lots of different healthy foods. The children also got to sample lots of different foods, including brown bread, watermelon, pineapple, peppers, baby tomatoes, feta cheese and cheddar cheese. The children learned lots about healthy eating and really enjoyed the experience.
