A Healthy Classroom Meal

Class 6.3 from the school at Mülheim (Germany) talked about healthy food in their lessons. After that, they decided to prepare a healthy afternoon snack in their classroom. A group of the students did the planning. They decided where to go shopping andhow much food they would have to buy for 32 persons.

On a Saturday morning they went shopping. They were able to buy some fruit from a shop which relatives of one of the student rum on their farm in Mülheim.

The following Monday, they brought their groceries to school and prepared a resh and healthy snack for the class. They had fruit, vegetables and cheese. After the meal, everbody got a little chocolate and some crisps because if you eat healthily, such things are also permitted. It depends on the amount that you eat.

The class also worked on healthy recipes. Here is one of them:
