Anyone fancy a raw muesli bar? If you are quick you may find some in the yr 5’s freezer at the Bwgcolman community school. It’s awesome to be teaching the children about the 8 laws of health. I have been making it memorable by using the acronym RAW DATES. (Rest, Air, Water, Diet, Abstain, Trust, Exercise, Sunshine)

Today was fun. The children have been on holidays for the last 2 weeks and we have been away so it has been over one month since I have seen most of them. It was a 1:30 start, an afternoon class and as mentioned previously, it was fun but also extremely noisy. The children were in afternoon mode and I think I now understand what teachers go through every afternoon!

 

With everything I do it has to be quick, to the point, simple and easy to make in a classroom setting. Today was a raw muesli bar recipe. We were focusing on packaging and learning how to read and understand ingredients list. During this we spoke about mono sodium glutamate and hydrogenated oils (we were using peanut butter). Each of the children made their own packaging. Then we made some muesli bars…It was messy but we completed it and they loved it!

Anyone for a recipe?

2 cups of uncle Toby’s rolled oats
1/2 cup of desiccated coconut
1/2 cup of honey
1/2 cup of peanut butter
1/2 cup of currants
1/2 cup of pepitas/sunflower seeds
2 pinches of salt

Mix dry ingredients. Add wet ingredients. Press firmly into lined tin. Cut desired shapes. Can be eaten immediately but is much better after being placed in a freezer for at least 1 hr. Enjoy!
