Activities like folding towels, covering the pillows, folding Newspapers, watering plants were the few activities so far introduced, which will surely make the kids try the same at home too.

Poor nutrition can impair our daily health and wellbeing and reduce our ability to lead an enjoyable and active life. Most of the time we gulp whatever we get to eat , not paying much attention to the nutrient value present in it. This leads to a dangerous situation of nutritional disorders. Nutrition is essential for the growth and development, health and wellbeing of a human being . Eating a healthy diet contributes to preventing future illnesses and improving quality and length of life. So keeping this in mind, a science activity on the topic “Nutrilicious” was organized and orchestrated by the grade IV students. To inculcate the habit of consuming a good variety of healthy food, students were encouraged to present some very unique delicacies. The students prepared and displayed a variety of dishes prepared from simple ingredients used in the daily kitchen, keeping in mind the nutrient value of each dish. They were made aware of the importance of different nutrients present in the food and how the lack of these will lead to different health issues.
