Healthy Eating, Exercise and Sleep diaries.

We would like you to record everything you eat in a healthy eating diary. Tell us what you eat for every meal and your snacks.

Record the exercise you do every day. What did you do? How long for? How many reps?

Keep a record of how you sleep. What time did you go to bed? How long did you sleep for? Did you sleep through the night? Did you wake up? Did you have any dreams?

We would like to hear your thoughts and reflections on all these things. Write diary entries on how this all makes you feel. Can you notice any links between these things? Do you sleep better or worse depending on what you eat or how you exercise? Do you have more energy for exercise depending on what you eat?

We will be giving out prizes to some of the healthiest eaters and people who do the most exercise in year 6. Have a look at the link below for some information and reminders on healthy diet.
