A Unique School Activity for Nutrition Month 2015

M went to school today with 5 peso coins amounting to 25 Pesos. She isn't familiar with the denominations yet so the husband gave her a quick orientation.
She needs to bring money for their mini market activity today as an observance to Nutrition Month.
It's M's 3rd year in school, but in her nursery and kinder 1 years, they were asked to wear a costume that relates to nutrition and play some games.

I never complained but I believe those activities weren't able to give a huge impact on the kids. The prep and execution were tedious but I would say expected result which is to teach kids the importance of nutrition is not highly achieved.

The other day, there's a note on her assignment notebook instructing us to let her bring around 20-25 pesos today for their mini market day activity.

According to the note, they will be asked to buy nutritious food. Junk food will be displayed as well but the teachers would guide and educate them on why they need to buy the fruits such as apple, orange and banana.

They will be taught about the entire marketing process too as they will be paying for the items and they will be given receipts of their purchase too.

The Mini Market Activity has a lot of potential in terms of achieving the goal of teaching the little ones the value of good nutrition.

I will try to provide an update when M comes home from school.

This year’s Nutrition Month theme will focus on the growing problem of obesity in the Philippines.

This year's campaign, “Timbang iwasto sa tamang nutrisyon at ehersisyo,” (Correct weight through right nutrition and exercise) aims to spread awareness on obesity prevention.


She came home very happy with an apple, a banana and an orange!

Art, Music or Dance School Search for McKenzie: Lea De Castro Music Studio & Artist Center

McKenzie turned 2 last Monday, August 20, 2012.

She is displaying extreme interest to singing, dancing and art (color-ing! she would always say). This made us decide to check out the available music, art or dance schools in our area.

Last Sunday, we dropped by Lea De Castro Music Studio and Artist Center Inc in Binakayan, Kawit, Cavite. It is approximately 15 minutes away from our place.

Unfortunately, music lessons are offered only to kids 6yo and older.

They offer Baby Ballet for 3-5 year old kids. The person at the front desk told me they could accept kids younger than 3yo provided she is ready to be left alone in the studio with the dance teacher and the other kids.The Dance Studio is at the 2nd floor and parents can only wait outside.
