Using our Awesome Authors topic this half term, we are going to be looking at the book “Willy the Wimp”, by Anthony Browne. Willy is a kind and gentle gorilla but he is bullied by the suburban gorilla gang who call him "Willy the Wimp".

This week we are going to look at Healthy Eating.
What does healthy eating mean? Can you eat chocolate, cake, and ice-cream? Well yes you can, but in moderation. That means a little bit is ok. To just eat chocolate all the time is not good. Have a look at the food pyramid below. Look at where the food you enjoy to eat comes on the pyramid.
Task two: Think about what you ate yesterday, write them down as a list.
For example this was what I ate yesterday:
Breakfast: Fried egg on toast, coffee
snack: Chocolate biscuit, coffee
Lunch: Bacon sandwich, glass of water
Tea: spaghetti bolognese, glass of juice
snack: Chocolate Raisins, herbal tea
Not terribly healthy was it!
Once you've looked at what you ate. What changes could you make?
Draw up a menu for the day. What healthy things could you eat?
