Planting our Veggie Garden

As part of our healthy bodies, healthy lifestyle program at kinder we will continue to discuss which foods are best for our bodies and why.

We will talk lots about fruits and vegetables that are grown above and those that grow below the ground.

We will continue to discuss how foods grown naturally in nature are unprocessed and full of good nutrients for us. Having an understanding of where our food comes from is also a key learning outcome for children.

We will be making fruit salad this term and veggie soup next term and be looking at, touching and tasting many fruits and vegetables that were fully grown but we will also look at seeds and seedlings and how plants grow with sun water, and soil.

In our veggie garden we have planted carrots (to grow below the ground) and snow peas (to grow above the ground) lettuce, cauliflower and lots of different herbs that we can smell and taste.
