Learning is made colorful, enjoyable and meaningful for the little ones at Staford School. With an objective to create awareness and to educate children about the importance of including vegetables in regular diet, the youngsters from nursery to class 1 celebrated Vegetable Day on 11th July 2014.
Teachers wove an interesting activity on this day, using fun, innovative and simple stories that encouraged children to have vegetables in their meals. The teachers also explained the contribution of vegetables in the mental and physical growth. The tiny tots had fun learning about the taste, smell, colour and texture of each vegetable through the role play activities. The importance of washing the vegetables before eating or cooking them, and the benefits of eating fresh vegetables were reiterated.
There was a whole lot of fun when the children and teachers sang the vegetable rhymes such as “potatoes and vegetables, vegetables” with great zest, enthusiasm and vigour, and when they recreated a vegetable market scene with a cartload full of vegetables in their classroom. The kindergarteners chose to speak on their favorite vegetables, while the nursery children dressed up in colourful vegetable headbands. The nursery and kindergarteners prepared a vegetable salad in their respective classes and had fun sharing it with their peers.
Little Stafordians will surely grow up eating healthy and enjoying their food if these habits are encouraged at home too.
