Scrumdiddlyumptious Smoothies

Over the last few weeks the children in Denmark Street have been learning about healthy living.  In History they studied the work of James Lind whose experiments on sailors in the 1700s helped end scurvy.  They also researched foods that contain Vitamin C, the lack of which causes scurvy, and planned a healthy meal using Vitamin C rich foods.

There was also an opportunity to try a range of commercially made smoothies and discuss the ingredients they contained.  The children then wrote their own smoothie recipes and costed out the ingredients they needed.  The class then made a large shopping list and set off to Morrisons to purchase everything.

Back at school everyone worked hard turning their recipes into real smoothie drinks.  There were some interesting flavour combinations but we were all brave enough to try our inventions and even managed to encourage some of the staff to do so to.
