Please find five video's below based around food groups. We grouped ourselves as the 'carbohydrates,' 'proteins,' 'fats and sugars,' 'dairy products' and 'fruits and vegetables.' The children then thought of their favourite foods which fell into their category. We hope you enjoy watching our performances!
