A Very Hungry Caterpillar!

Parents joined Hydesville Nursery children this week for a healthy eating workshop involving food and a very hungry caterpillar.

The interactive session was led by Clare Megeney, nutritionist from our catering provider, Chartwells Independent.

Based on the iconic story ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar,’ children identified all the different foods the caterpillar ate. They discussed which foods helped the caterpillar to grow and stay healthy and which foods made the caterpillar poorly.

The children then took part in the edible art challenge where they created a caterpillar made with a selection of fruits and vegetables. They even wrapped their caterpillars into a cocoon (tortilla wrap) and then enjoyed tasting their creations!

As well as teaching the children about the importance of a healthy diet, they had lots of fun…by the end of the session there were lots of full tummies and happy faces.
