Year 1s were so excited to learn about fruits and vegetables in DT today. They were surprised to learn that many foods commonly called vegetables are indeed fruits! We learned what the difference is between vegetables and fruits and where they grow (above ground, below the ground or on vines or trees). The children showed their sense of adventure in trying brand new foods – kiwis, butternut squash, mango, avocado and mint. We practised good hygiene and safe handling when preparing the fruits for our smoothies. We made three varieties of smoothies – Butternut Boost, Kiwi Crusher and Tropical Tango. Tropical Tango was the most popular smoothie in Year 1 containing pineapple, mango and orange juice.
