ESOL Learners in Worthing Learn About Healthy Eating

This week ESOL learners in Worthing had their first workshop on looking after yourself. They key theme was diet and how this can impact on learning.

ESOL learners started the session discussing their favourite foods and practising their spelling.


Using the eat well plate we explored healthy and unhealthy foods. Many of the learners talked about not knowing what to eat for breakfast and often skipping this meal. As a group we shared ideas together.

Using line graphs the learners compared what happens to energy levels in your body when you eat a banana compared to having an energy drink. The learners were shocked and started to identify alternatives to energy drinks … the most popular suggestion was ”have aubergine!”

Next week learners will be making a healthy meal and eating lunch together while continuing to explore ways to look after yourself.
