We’re now into week seven of FooTea at Cumbernauld Colts and last Friday the youngsters came together to focus on the difference between good and bad fats in their diets. The kids were taught how fat acts as the body’s reserve tank of energy, can protect their organs, helps them stay warm in cold weather and keeps their skin and hair healthy. They learned where they can get good fats from (unsaturated) and the foods that contain bad fats (saturated) and were encouraged to stay away from the “sometimes” foods which contain too much saturated fat. Sophie and Josh were particularly shocked to learn that a McDonald’s Big Mac contains 9.5g of saturated fat … disgusting! Coaches Alex and Chris then led the football hour which this week concentrated on shooting, with the kids encouraged to be positive in their play and to attempt different shooting options – side foot, front foot, knee over the ball etc. It was then on to the café for their meal which this week was chicken and broccoli pasta, followed by bananas, apples and blueberries.
