YOUR STORY: Students taught about healthy eating

Bundaberg Central State School
A talk on Healthy Lunch box Ideas from IWC

Report from Lauren Rhodes Year 5 Student

ON THURSDAY, April 23, after morning tea, we went into the library for a lesson about healthy eating.

Two ladies, Paula Tomlinson and Martina Connelly from the Indigenous Wellbeing Centre came to school to give us a talk.

We learnt that Coke has 21 teaspoons of sugar and  Diet Coke has 14 teaspoons of sugar.

We also learnt about smoking.

Smoking causes tar on your lungs and shortens your life.

Family pack up their life to give humanitarian aid

Nicotine is addictive and makes it hard to stop smoking.

Chocolate is also addictive if you eat too much and it also has lots of sugar.

Lunch boxes can be healthy or unhealthy.

Unhealthy lunch boxes have chips, lollies, biscuits and juice so there is a lot of sugar, fats, salts and additives.

A healthy lunchbox contains fruit,  sandwiches, salads, mineral water, nuts, and homemade popcorn.

Healthy lunch boxes might have a treat once a week.

The ladies spoke about fruit and veg that came from our country or overseas.

We should all try to buy food from our country which contains less sprays and chemicals.

We learnt a lot, so we are hoping in the future that our lunch boxes are all healthy ones.
