Healthy Christmas Alternatives • Almonds, raisins, dried banana chips, dried berries, dried pineapple cubes, mix of dried nuts and fruits, fresh apples, mandarins, ginger bread cookies, oat cookies and rice crisp cookies. We drank black currant juice. • The pupils liked dried fruits, raisins and almonds, but they were suspicious of dried berries. Everyone found the tasting very interesting. •

While we were making our smoothies, Japanise visitors asked if this was rather leisure time than a lesson, because there were´t any books‌ So learning by doing was something new for them. We had An Exotic Fruit Smoothie; mangos, pineapples, coconut milk and bananas, A Strawberry Smoothie with frozen strawberries, bananas and orangejuice, and Blueberry Smoothie with soya yoghurt, bananas, blueberries and raspberries. The winner was number 3, the Strawberry Smoothie! A Great day!
