Making Juice

As part of our inquiry learning unit we have been looking at 'brainfood'. 

 We found out that we need to eat a variety of food to give us energy, and fruit and vegetables are full of energy and nutrients.

Today I brought in apples, oranges, pears, green and gold kiwifruit, carrots, celery, and pineapple, and we experimented making and tasting different flavours of juice. The children were fascinated to see how carrots and celery can make juice too. Thanks to my marvelous teacher aide who brought in her juicer and a little ginger root!

I encouraged the children to try each juice, even if it was only a sip.

Some of our juice recipes included:
Fruit Salad
1 green kiwifruit, 1 apple, 1 pear, 1 orange, 2 gold kiwifruit, 1/4 whole pineapple - this was an overwhelming favourite.

Goody Gumdrops
1/4 whole pineapple, 2 oranges, 2 green kiwifruit, (you can also add strawberries to this recipe)

Sunshine O
4 carrots, 3 oranges, 1/4 teaspoon fresh ginger

Super Vege
2 apples, 3 oranges, 2 sticks celery
