The humble chip is a firm favourite with kids, but fried or oven baked, it isn’t the healthiest food available so, we’ve been making Green Chips with the elementary classes.
Kids learned the following:
Greens are green, leafy vegetables.
They are GOOD for us because they are rich in:
- Vitamin B: good for blood cells, skin and bone development, nervous system.
- Vitamin C: good for immune system, connective tissues, whole body
- Calcium: good for bones and teeth
- Fiber: Helps us pass waste out of the body, keeps our intestines clean!
People having chips for tea
Can be discerned quite easily
In every step they have a spring
Their day goes yay and woo and zing!
A sunny sunshine shines away
When they think up their chip soiree
Fluffy, crispy lovely things
For tea-time queens and dinner kings

Their smiles could launch a thousand ships
And all because they’re having chips.
Class 4: Look at those leafy greens
Class 4: Now we can eat them….yummy!
They are crunchy and GOOD.
Class 5: Look at our leafy-greens!
Class 5: Hey that’s a Sicilian-Broccoli it’s light-green!
Class 3: A sprinkle of salt and a drop of oil!
We picked those leafy greens
Oooh look at the broccoli!
We smelled the leaves.
The poem has been borrowed from a television advert in the UK for a famous Global brand of industrial produced oven chips. Can you do any better. Why are Green Chips fantastic?
