Vegetable Sandwich Day
“Do not tell them how to do it. Show them how to do it and do not say a word. If you tell them, they will watch your lips move. If you show them, they will do it themselves.”
At Bhavans IES, Kuwait we create a miniature world for our little ones where they are trained not just to read, compute and write but are prepared for a healthy life as well. To sensitize the children on the importance of developing healthy food habits in place of junk food, ‘Vegetable Sandwich Day’ was celebrated at the KG wing of IES on September 15, 2022 wherein the children had loads of fun preparing tasty sandwiches of their own style together with the help of their teachers. After all, from breakfast to lunches to dinners, the one food item that fits all the meals is SANDWICH! Sandwiches are indeed a delight at any time, in any season and teaching kids to make one is equipping them with a great life skill.
During this event held in the respective classes, students participated very enthusiastically and learnt how to make a simple sandwich. It was indeed a novel way of making the tiny tots learn about the importance of vegetables in our balanced diet and their nutritive values.
Children spent a fun-filled time with their teachers enjoying the procedure of making healthy and yummilicious vegetable sandwiches. With great enthusiasm, the tiny tots relished their own scrumptious sandwiches.
Children spoke about the vegetables they used in making their sandwiches and their importance in our diet. They were also made aware of the importance of washing vegetables before chopping and eating. A couple of other activities like colouring and drawing added on to the beauty of the event. Mrs. Muneera Mammikutty, the Headmistress, complimented the students and teachers for making this event a great success.
Yummy, crunchy, salubrious veggie sandwiches splashed with sizzling, saucy and savory fillings made with cute little hands turned the Vegetable Sandwich Day into a memorable event at IES Kindergarten.
