Healthy Eats continues to influence the healthy choices of Year 5 students across Cairns, Townsville and Mackay.

Take Mackay’s Hampden State School for example, where children enjoyed creating their own healthy snacks during their recent Healthy Eats classroom session.

“That was the first time I’ve ever tried cucumber. I was surprised that it was so yummy,” Year 5 student, Molly said.

Students not only enjoyed the taste of the healthy snacks but were amazed to learn how their bodies use the vitamins and nutrients from eating healthy foods.

Jack, from Year 5 was particularly intrigued.

“It’s so cool learning about all the vitamins. I want to learn what areas of the body Vitamins A, B, C and D go to, and what they all do,” said Jack.

Year 5 student Nathan was also impressed by the vitamins and nutrients journey.

“Wow, that is seriously crazy how they (the nutrients) all travel so far!”
