International Day at School
The boy’s school was celebrating “International Day” on Friday. They were to learn about customs, language, flags etc. from other countries. Joe’s class were asked to each bring in food from a different country to share with each other for lunch. Joe and I discussed this and decided there would be lots of savoury food and probably lots of “party” food so we chose fruit as our share food. Fruit comes from all over the globe so we picked a selection and made flags from one of the countries that produce lots of the particular fruit.
Joe was delighted by the idea of presenting it in a train and Joe’s teacher very kindly indulged me setting it all up in the classroom before lunch. We then got to discuss where the fruit came from and where on the map the different countries were before the class got to choose their favourite fruits to eat.
I love the opportunity to share healthy food and get everyone excited about it.
I used my healthy pastry recipe (adding some cinnamon and nutmeg to give it a “sweet” smell and taste) and made the train trucks very simply. I will blog the recipe Friday as that is my normal fruit/dessert day!!
