¡La oruga nos enseñó que buenos alimentos son importante!

Hoy leímos: La orgua muy hambrienta por Eric Carle

La oruga comenzó el cuento comiendo deliciosas frutas, pero llegó un día que la oruga comió dulces, pasteles y otras comidas que no son tan alimenticios.  ¿Y qué le pasó?  ¡Le dio un dolor de barriga!  Pero luego comió una hoja y se sintió mejor.

Has comiendo frutas y vegetales divertido.  Como haciendo un dibujo con frutas en el plato.  Haciendo licuados de frutas y añadiendo un vegetal.
La primavera se acerca y es un tiempo perfecto de refrescarse con deliciosas con frutas y vegetales.
Cuando vaya con su niño(a) al mercado compren uvas y cuenta cuántas están juntas o plátanos o vegetales.  ¡Siempre tengan una variedad de frutas y vegetales en la mesa!
