Healthy habits in focus
The Narrogin Regional Child Care Centre held a morning tea last week to officially open their Healthy Eating and Wellbeing Learning Centre or Wellness Room.
The room has an oven, cooking equipment, some storage and yoga mats, and was a Community Chest Project sponsored by the Shire of Narrogin.
Families, the Shire of Narrogin and the local community were invited to join the children and educators for healthy food prepared by the children.
Quiches and fruit kebabs were enjoyed by all and the children selected from the rainbow of fruits to make their own kebab.
The centre would like to thank Mr Cook and Mr Ludovico from the Shire of Narrogin, and families who were able to attend the morning tea.
The children have been enjoying the cooking experiences and yoga.
These experiences have provided valuable learning especially in literacy, numeracy, science, social and life skills.
The centre plans to continue to promote other habits needed for wellbeing, like eating a rainbow of fruits and vegetables every day, growing food to eat and learning about where food comes from.
