Elevii clasei a V-a a Liceului Națioal „Ioan Petruș” din Otopeni au organizat atelierul de educație globală Cunoaște și recunoaște, în cadrul orei de limba engleză, cu ajutorul d-nei profesoare Monica Floris Kiriță.
Iată unul din articolele realizate cu această ocazie.
I suppose all of you know at least one or two things about healthy eating but I’m still going to tell you some simple guidelines that I believe will help you lead a healthier and happier life.
First off, let’s make something clear, healthy eating is not about strict dietary limitations, staying unrealistically thin or depriving yourself of the foods you love. No! It’s about feeling great, having more energy, improving your health and stabilizing your mood.
If you feel overwhelmed by all the conflicting nutrition and diet advice out there, you are not alone. It seems like for every expert who tells you a certain food is good for you, you will find another saying exactly the opposite. Bottom line is you can eat almost anything you like but with moderation.
Also, here are a few simple rules I encourage you to follow that will guarantee you a healthier and stronger body and mind:
- prepare more of your own meals;
- make the right choices – don’t eat a lot of fast food;
- read the labels of the food you buy;
- drink plenty of water.
A few days ago we had a project named „Healthy eating”. Our English teacher cut some fruits that we had to taste and guess what fruit it was. We also did a lot of other relevant things like designing a restaurant menu with healthier meals and had an open discussion about what healthy means and how every little choice we make during the day might have a great impact on our health.
It was an exciting experience because we had fun, we took photographs and learned about healthy food and healthy eating. This project is unique in Europe and it’s a great chance to learn how to have more energy and how to be healthy.
Thank you for reading this article and I hope all the children understand how important it is to eat healthy and how this is good for their minds and bodies.
