On October 7th, the preK – K children at Citron enjoyed an interactive presentation on nutrition. Using the book Eating The Alphabet by Lois Ehlert as a visual guide, the children participated with great enthusiasm in guessing the name of a fruit or a vegetable that began with the letter A, B, C, etc.
Can you guess? A = (apples, apricot, artichoke, avocado)
B was for banana, blueberries and yes, even broccoli. The children said that they LIKE broccoli. Hmmm I wonder if their parents would agree. That would be great!
C was for carrots, cherries, and corn.
D was for Dates (that was a hard one).
Can you guess what vegetable begins with the letter “E”? Hint: it’s a type of lettuce.
The older children made it all the way to “F”. The presentation concluded with the song, “Five a Day” emphasizing eating five servings of fruits and vegetables every day. There was lots of singing and even dancing to the music. We all had fun, and I look forward to presenting again in November at Fairmont!
Enjoy eating your alphabet!
