Breakfast - Which One For Me?

Is breakfast your most important meal of the day? Nutritionists say that it should be, because it sets you up for the day by refuelling your body after a good nights sleep. Having a healthy breakfast which is low in fat and high in energy will keep me going for the day. For breakfast I have, three 'Weet-bix', a cup of milk and two teaspoons of sugar with a freshly sliced banana on top.

Choosing the right food for breakfast, can be easy if you know what sort of food to eat to help keep your energy levels high. Food and drinks, like smoothies made with fruit, juice or milk will give you lots of energy.

Even though bacon and eggs are really tasty, it is really high in fat. Eating bacon and eggs for breakfast will make you feel full, but later in the day it will make you feel lazy because of the high fat content. I think that bacon and eggs is not a good choice for breakfast all the time, but you can have it as a treat.

I have learnt a lot about healthy food, and making the right choices of food to eat for breakfast. It is good to have breakfast to start you up for the day.

Thank you Vanila.

Camp Highlights

Camp was great! We did a lot of activities, and my favorite activity was the Amazing race. The Amazing Race was amazing! We made sling shots, and after we had made them we took turns on them. All we had to do was, try shoot our thing that we made out of sticky tape and newspaper. We shot it on a bucket with points on it!

Wow I was so stunned as I aimed our groups sling shot and it hit the 100 points twice. What a shot I said! Every time it hit the bucket, I was filled with excitement! It was a great improvement.

After we had finished playing with the sling shots it was time to do the real Amazing Race. Mr Bark’s gave each group a map, so that we could find the things that we needed. As he gave it to us, he said that we had 19 minutes to find the things and, also to bring it back.

When we got the stuff, we had to return to Mr Barks and tried to create a fire to cook an egg on it. To cook the egg we had to get a tin, wood, matches and an egg. First we had to make a fire, using the wood and matches. As the fire raised, we put the tin over it and scooped some butter to put onto the tin. When the butter melted we cracked the egg and waited for it to cook. As it was on the tin, we waited for to cook.

Finally, it was cooked! When we were finished, Mr Barks sliced our egg and we got to eat it. I had a lot of fun doing the Amazing Race. Hopefully I could do it for our next camp.
