“An apple a day keeps the doctor away”. Indeed, apple is beneficial to maintain one’s health, just like all the other fruits available to us. Fruits contain necessary nutrients that make them an important part of our diet. Fruits are linked with good health and improved immunity. To demonstrate the importance of fruits and eating healthy in day-to-day life, the Kindergarten wing of Bhavans Smart Indian School celebrated ‘Fruit Salad Day’ on 26th September 2019.
The students were instructed to bring along one of their favourite fruits to school. The day started out with an assembly conducted by KG2 Virgo and KG2 Libra. The assembly showcased two skits and a dance showing the importance and benefits of fruits. After the assembly, activities were planned to teach the children more about the fruits. The kindergartners chorused together as they sang songs about fruits. After which, the students animated different fruits feeling the happiness by the sensation of touch and smell. All that was left was the sensation of taste and the tiny tots were excited for the preparation of the fruit salad. The teachers cut the fruits and placed them all inside a big bowl. The students were keen to see their teacher prepare and learn to make a fruit salad. The teachers then served the fruit salad in a bowl to all the kids. The kids had their salad scrumptiously with delight.
Consumption of fruits aid a healthy lifestyle and we at Bhavans Smart Indian School wanted to promote the idea of eating healthy among young children. The day was a success as children went home with a smile on their face.
