To adopt healthy food habits and explore the nutritional benefits of proteins, Evergreen Public School (EPS), Vasundhra Enclave, conducted a salad making activity on a digital platform that evoked a lot of zeal

. During the event, the students learnt that proteins are the building blocks of the body and that growing children need lots of them in their daily diet.

The children were introduced sprouts which are considered to be the best food that they can have to enhance healthy growth. The fact that nutrition in sprouts is 30 times more than the cooked food amazed the students.

On the occasion, the students donned the chef’s hat, took great delight in cultivating their culinary skills and gained insight into the benefits and the nutritional value of sprouts in salad.

To make sprout salads, the children used different ingredients like moong dal (green gram) sprouts, chana sprouts, chopped onions, tomatoes, cucumber, lemon, salt etc. The little chefs showcased their creativity and prepared tasty salads. The students were guided at every step to maintain hygiene while performing this activity. The zeal with which every student took part in that activity was reflecting on their faces.

At the end, the family members of the students relished the yummy and colourful salads served by their little ones. Moreover, the students learnt how to cook independently without fire. Overall, it was a fun-filled event.
