The theme for this year's Nutrition Month celebration is "Pagkain ng gulay ugaliin, araw-araw ihain!" and its main focus is to encourage Filipinos to increase their vegetable consumption. By doing so, micronutrient deficiencies can be addressed and non-communicable diseases such as cardiovascular disease, cancer and diabetes can also be prevented.
The Learners' Academy (aka my son's school) celebrated Nutrition Month last Friday with various classroom activities. Take a look at what my son's Kindergarten class did at school.
|Huge smile from my eager beaver.|
|Teacher Love shows the kids what they need to do.|
|Yue's turn to do it.|
|Getting ready for the good stuff. :)|
|A blob of mayonnaise here...|
|some carrots there...|
|Yue has so many questions in between, lol.|
|Mixing the ketchup...|
|Mix, mix, mix!|
|The face that can ignite a war, lol.|
And when Teacher Love announced that it was time to make their own juice, the little man was more ready to pounce on the calamansi.
|Check out my son's hair, inspired by Siwon of Super Junior. But of course. ;)|
|Both hands in action! Haha!|
This was one activity my son really enjoyed. He loves Elmo's Magical Cookbook a lot and he seems to have developed a liking for Gordon Ramsay and his bad-ass, don't-mess-with-the-chef attitude, so it's great that he had the chance to take a stab at 'cooking' like Elmo and Chef Ramsay.
And don't be surprised to see the moms hovering in the photos. We usually stay outside the school premises during class hours, but Teacher Love allowed us to enter the classroom so we could take photos of the kids.
Thank you, Teacher Love and TLA for letting us capture these precious moments. Can't wait for the next school activity! Anticipating August! :)
