Hi Everybody! My blog name is Pavlova and I am 9 years old just like Veg. I live in Perth – not in Scotland- but in Western Australia. Can you guess why I have called myself Pavlova?
I go to Dalkeith Primary School and we don’t have a school canteen so I have to take a packed lunch every day. We all eat outside our classrooms on the shady veranda.
It is like having a picnic everyday. Here is a picture of my lunch today.
I had Vietnamese chicken spring rolls filled with grated carrot, coriander, capsicum (that’s red pepper) and the left over chicken from my Sunday roast. It was delicious dipped in chilli sauce. I had fruit salad after though Mum forgot to pack a fork so it was a messy business! I had an oatmeal cookie for recess which was tasty too.
Food-o-meter- 10/10- it was delicious
Health rating- 9/10- lost a point because of the cookie though it was homemade.
Courses– main/dessert and my recess snack
Price- difficult to say as was bits of leftovers from our Sunday lunch though about $3.00.
Pieces of hair– 0
Amount of his packed lunch my brother brought home uneaten- about half and all of his fruit!
Number of Olympic medals won by Australia- 3 one of each color!
At my school we are not allowed junk food as we have a healthy eating policy. There is a traffic light system of food. Food on the red list is not allowed. This is sugary and unhealthy food. We can have food from the amber list sometimes and we must try and eat lots of healthy stuff off the green list.
As Veg said it is winter here in Australia but it has been a beautiful sunny day. It was 23 degrees. I have just checked online and it is 14 degrees in Scotland though I guess you may still warm up a bit this afternoon.
It great news that Veg has been nominated for the great Scot award. I hope she wins.
I am really excited to be in filling in for Veg this week. See ya tomorrow!
Veg's dad here We've had a great science project sent in by the William Campbell College in Nowra on the south coast of New South Wales, Australia. So over to Steven who is 7 years old.
'My Australian food that I chose is Ginger Beer. My mum buys ginger beer for me and I love it.
Ginger beer is “red” food. That means you can only drink it sometimes. The main ingredient of Ginger Beer is ginger, and it tastes really good. It’s not like other beer, because it doesn't have alcohol in it, so kids can drink it too. One serving is one bottle(375ml) and it has 40g of sugar!
Ginger beer is my favourite cold drink. If I was allowed to, I would drink it every day!
