Memorandum:

Module 5 deals with the importance of a healthy lifestyle. This includes healthy eating habits, personal hygiene, exercise and ways to prevent communicable diseases.

Healthy eating habits

Explain the food pyramid in a simple way to the learners.

Use a poster or pictures to explain to the learners how food can be divided into the following three broad groups:

  1. Food that help our bodies to grow strong, i.e. proteins in meat, fish, cheese, milk, eggs and nuts.
  2. Foods that give us energy, i.e. carbohydrates in cereals, pasta, bread, sugar, jam and honey. (When we say we are full of energy, we thus mean that we are ready to move fast or do a lot of work!).
  3. Foods that help us to stay healthy and fight germs and illnesses, i.e. vitamins and minerals in fruit and vegetables.

We need food from each of these groups on a daily basis to help us stay healthy. It is, however, important to eat only a limited amount of sugar and fat, as too much of these foods can make us overweight.

Learners now complete the worksheet. They must draw or cut pictures from magazines to fill the lunch box with healthy foods. They must include something from each of the different groups. Learners can take this worksheet home and ask their parents to prepare them something similar for the next school day. Encourage them to bring healthy food to school every day.
