This week Year 3 have been thinking about what humans and animals need to survive. We have also been comparing the diet of animals and humans and we now know that we each need different levels of nutrition and therefore our diets are different. We then thought about what a human healthy diet looks like and the children could recall examples of proteins, carbohydrates, dairy, fats and sugars. This week we learnt about what these do for our bodies and why we need them. The children learnt more about fats and how there are good fats and bad fats. The children had different foods that they had to order as a group from least amount of saturated fats (bad fats) to most amount. Some of the foods definitely surprised us and made us think.
