Fruits Day Celebration
Fruit Day serves to teach kids the significance of maintaining a balanced diet and encourages healthier eating habits to extend life spans.
Students from Berlin created this festival in 2007. On this worldwide celebration day, people from any culture, nation, mentality, religion, or lifestyle are welcome to share fruits with family members, friends, or those in need in celebration and harmony.
Preschoolers take part in “Fruit Day” festivities to learn about the importance of eating fruit for a healthier lifestyle and its contribution. Educators utilize creative techniques to convince kids to add fruits and vegetables into their diet, such as telling them green veggies cry when not eaten or creating stories about how delicious fruits taste.
By participating in these activities, preschoolers can become acquainted with new fruit varieties they might not have encountered before and establish an openness to trying fresh foods that may otherwise lead to fussy eating patterns that become lasting issues as children develop into adulthood. This could prevent picky eating habits from developing into long-term problems later on.
Preschool “Fruit Day” festivities provide an ideal way to teach youngsters about environmental protection. Conversations about organic produce, sustainable agricultural methods, and the effect of food choices on the planet may all be part of this event. Teachers could encourage children to plant fruit trees or make compost with their discarded fruit peels for this event.
LKG to 2nd class students celebrated Fruit Day by representing different fruits through dress/chart. They discussed the many health benefits of fruits as nature’s delicious foods, sang rhymes about them with their teachers, carried the fruit to make a salad, and discovered all its qualities – taste, scent, texture. All of this made this eventful day truly enjoyable and unforgettable for all involved.
Preprimary school kids enjoy celebrating Fruits Day by sharing their favorite fruits and joining in various activities designed to teach them about fruits. Not only are these activities entertaining, but they can also prepare healthy eating habits!
Studies have shown that children who include fruits in their daily diet tend to be healthier, have lower risks of chronic diseases in later years, and have less chance of vitamin C and A deficiencies. It is, therefore, essential for pre-primary school students to eat plenty of fruits and vegetables rich in potassium, vitamin K, and fiber, as well as an abundance of Vitamin C and Folic acid for optimal health.
For greater awareness about the value of fruits, many countries have declared a special day called Fruit Day on July 1st as part of an effort to bring people from diverse cultures, nations, mentalities, and religions together to share their favorite fruits among themselves in joy and harmony.
Pre-primary school children are highly engaged in the activities conducted to teach them about fruits. Dressed in fruit costumes, they perform songs and rhymes about various fruits before having an opportunity to create their fruit salad with multiple ingredients and take part in a quiz competition that measures their knowledge about its benefits.
Fruits have long been a source of energy and nourishment. You can eat them raw or cook them to add variety to meals and beverages. Furthermore, fruit consumption helps promote a healthier lifestyle and protects against cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, and certain cancers.
International Fruit Day was begun in 2007 at Mauerpark in Berlin by Alice Salomon Berlin, a former social work student from the University of Applied Sciences. It became an event celebrating sustainable living that encouraged people to share fruits with family, friends, and those less fortunate than themselves.
This year, the United Nations has designated 2021 as the International Year of Fruits and Vegetables to raise awareness about their nutritional benefits and promote sustainable development. Eating more fruits and vegetables has been shown to reduce heart disease risk factors like diabetes and obesity while simultaneously improving overall health and sustainability development goals. They aim to encourage people of all ages to eat more fruits and vegetables, which will benefit not only themselves but also society as a whole; reduce hunger/malnutrition globally while combatting chronic diseases while simultaneously improving mental well-being – they even outline ways of helping reduce food waste/loss within global food systems!
