Many students from 2KM were unfamiliar with the word tangerine after seeing Kayla's brainfood.
Here is some information about this popular fruit!
The orange tangerine is a citrus in the family of mandarin fruit. A tangerine is basically an orange, but the tangerine is smaller, flatter, and it is easier to peel. This sweet fruit is harvested in Arizona, California, Florida, Brazil, China, Italy, Japan, Spain, and does not grow in Australia.
2KM would like to tell you more about their lunchtime...
Everyday at 1:30pm the students in 2KM eat their lunch inside our classroom. We sit in a circle like this to eat our lunch...
Most people bring lunches from home in their lunchboxes. There are usually one or two students each day who buy their lunch from the school canteen. You have to order your lunch in the morning by writing your order on a paper bag. At 1:30 monitors from each grade walk over to the canteen to collect the lunch orders.
Here is our school canteen.
In our state there is a rule that school canteens cannot sell lollies, chocolate, soft drinks and other junk food any more. The state government is trying to get people to make healthy choices.
Popular foods at the canteen are salad rolls, homemade pizza, nachos, homemade meat pies and sausage rolls.
At 1:40pm we go outside to play. Our school is very big but the most popular places for students in Grades One and Two to play are this playground and oval. We like to play footy (AFL) and cricket on the oval. The grass is a bit dry because Australia is in a drought (that means there is not enough rain).

You may be wondering, what is brainfood?
Brainfood is a small fruit or vegetable morning snack that allows us to refuel our brains and bodies so we can do our best work. Some popular brainfood snacks in 2KM are strawberries, cherry tomatoes, carrot or celery sticks, plums, nectarines, grapes, watermelon and sultanas.
