Yum, Yum, Yum! Fresh fruit and veg in my tum!

Today the 1/2s had a visit from Market Fresh! There were two lovely ladies named Carolyn and Tisha who talked to us about the Wholesale Fruit and Vegetable Market in Melbourne. There are 4,000 people who work at the market. It is the biggest market in the Southern hemisphere and the 5th biggest market in the world. How cool!

They explained how fruit and vegetables got from the farm to us. First they harvest and collect the fruit and vegetables. Then it is packaged and transport to the market. After this it gets bought and taken to a shop to sell the fruit and vegetables. Then we buy it.

After our great talk and little video, we got to eat the delicious fruit that is supplied to us by the market and the excellent farmers. We ate cucumbers, oranges, apples, bananas, capsicum, pear and more. Some of us were very brave and tried new things. It was incredibly delicious and a great snack, some of the freshest food we had ever eaten!

A big thank you to our parent helpers who chopped up all the delicious fruit and vegetables for us. You are wonderful!
