Today Your Child Learned...
Dear Parent & Guardian,
We are excited to share that your child has completed the following PSHE lesson. Check out our overview and top tips to support their development...
Today’s PSHE Lesson
Nutritional Values (Nutrients And What They Do For Us)
Having an idea about what nutrients are and the jobs that they do for our bodies to keep them working efficiently will allow your child to see just how important they are in their diet. Proteins help growth and repair, carbohydrates give us the energy to move and be active, fats and oils help food absorption and vitamins and minerals keep our immune system working.
What We Covered In The PSHE Lesson
Here’s what we went through today...
- Nutrients being a substance that provides nourishment essential for life and growth.
- What each of the nutrients do for our bodies for example, carbohydrates provide us with energy.
- Activity in our daily lives will affect the amount of nutrients that we need and how our body uses them.
How You Can Help From Home
Here’s what you can talk about during dinner...
- Ask your child if they can tell you about different nutrients.
- Talk about which nutrients and foods help our bodies for example, protein helps growth and repair and is found in meat and dairy products.
- Discuss whether your lives are active enough to use the nutrients and calories that you eat every day and if not, what could we do to change this?
Go Above & Beyond
Here are some other ideas to support your childs PSHE lessons...
- Look at the meals that you and your family eat and talk about how you could make small changes to include more of the nutrients that your body needs and fewer of the nutrients that alter the healthy balance of your daily diet.
- Try new foods and encourage your children to find foods in the supermarket that you’ve not tried that could provide a healthier alternative.
When it comes to your child’s development, teachers and parents are better together! By aligning our goals and education techniques, we can better realise our vision of positively preparing your child for their future.
