MarketFresh Incursion

MarketFresh Incursion

The Prep to 2s had so much fun participating in a MarketFresh Incursion on Friday 26th February. They learnt all about where fruit and where vegetables come from, how these are harvested and transported and how they eventually get to supermarkets and markets to be sold. They tasted fresh vegetables and fruit and got to take home a fun activity booklet with healthy recipes and games to use at home. It was a fun afternoon.

Facts about The MarketFresh Schools:
