Creativity and Good Nutrition in the Kitchen

Like any healthy habit, good nutrition is important for children to learn from an early age.  

Fueling up – not just filling up – helps:

  • Kids grow physically
  • Promote brain development
  • Stabilize energy and moods
  • Prevent disease

and the benefits don’t stop there.

Given that food is an important part of all of our lives, we have been having fun with “Creativity in the Kitchen” as our monthly curriculum theme and nutrition as our science focus for June.

All of our teachers bring these topics to life in different ways for their classes through integrated lesson plans and hands-on activities. Taking part in everything from taste tests and fruit art … to celery science and cooking reactions, our friends have been cooking up some fun!

At The Malvern School of Royersford, our Pre-K class practiced their writing skills, creating a grocery list by copying from a supermarket sales page. They then cut out food photos from those ads and pasted them onto paper plates to create healthy, balanced meals.

 

Our Preschool friends in Lionville put their personal touch on a large graph charting their favorite healthy foods. Looks like it’s grapes for the win!

 

At The Malvern School of Medford, our Infants explored paint by creating chef hats, while the Pre-K classes learned about science by mixing batter and later enjoying a delicious apple pie treat.
