Welcome to our first edition of the
school’s healthy eating magazine—Tutti
A team of year six journalists have worked
as a team to put together some areas in
which you may have an interest in.
They have tried to cater for all ages so to
encourage everyone to contribute to future
editions. We are hoping to interview pupils
and adults on issues related to healthy eating.
If you know any food songs or poems
which you would like to be published —
meet up with one of the team members and
share your ideas.
It would be great if parents shared with us
cooking tips or interesting recipes or alternative
packed lunch ideas which their children
enjoy. Send them in via your child
addressed to the Y6 Healthy Eating Team.

What is a healthy balanced diet?
When it comes to healthy eating the most important thing to remember is that there are
no such things as ‘good’ and ‘bad’ foods. The occasional biscuit or packet of crisps
isn’t going to do any harm as long as the rest of your diet is a healthy balance.
The secret to a healthy diet is balance. To help you get it right, nutritionists have
divided foods into five groups shown below in the Balance of Good Health. You need
to eat some food from each of the food groups each day to ensure you get all the nutrients
your body needs. Foods from the ‘Fruit and Vegetables’ group, and the ‘Bread,
Cereals and Potatoes group should be eaten most often.
Balance of good health
All foods can be part of a healthy diet – it’s important for health
to achieve the right balance and include a variety of foods. Eating
a healthy, balanced diet and staying active are two of the
most important factors to help live a long and healthy life.
