Healthy Habits Food
We need to equip our children with the knowledge to allow them to make healthy food choices, to know that by eating a broad range of wholefoods, they will get all the vitamins and minerals they need to grow up, strong and healthy.
On this camp your children will learn to create delicious and healthy meals, snacks and desserts. They will discover that healthy food can be fun, easy to prepare and delicious to eat. All whole foods will be used. Dishes will be wheat, dairy and refined sugar free. Children will try new foods. All they need to bring is an empty lunchbox.
Every week we walk through supermarket aisles where products proclaim goodness, yet contain high levels of sugar, hydrogenated fats and little or no nutrition. To understand labelling often requires a degree in nutrition. We need to give our children the knowledge that allows them to understand labelling and make healthy choices.
On this camp we will use a fun learning environment to discover how to be a “nutrition spy” in the supermarket. We will use simple and quick rules to help find the hidden “junk”. We will discover ways to make a “rainbow” plate, to ensure our bodies get all the vitamins & minerals it needs .
Through a range of activities the children will have fun learning these life skills and you can look forward to a nice healthy breakfast in bed.
Healthy Habits Yoga
The children will learn all about the origins of yoga and what a yoga class involves. They will learn ways to be mindful and taught, through different breathing exercises, how to cope and deal with uncomfortable emotions in the body and how to self soothe. We learn about our body, how to keep our body healthy, supple and strong through different yoga poses. Children will be introduced to therapy artwork where they will learn different techniques to help them relax and take time out for themselves from their busy days.
Each day we have a different yoga theme. We get creative with story telling, yoga games and therapy artwork.
