Old healthy celery...

Celery is really rich in vitamins such as vitamin C and B vitamins, especially folid acid and niacin. Everybody should eat this vegetable and today we present one easy recipe - celery soup that will quickly warm you up on cold days!

Ingredients:
1/2 of big celery root
small leek but only the white part
2 potatoes
1 clove of garlic
1l of vegetable or chicken stock
125ml of Greek yoghurt
ricotta cheese
ghee
salt & peper

Dice the vegetables in small pieces. Melt the ghee in a big pot, add leek and simmer few minutes until soft, add garlic and simmer some more. Add potatoes and celery root. Simmer under the lid for 15min, stiring from time to time. Add the stock and cook for another 20min. Blend everything together to achieve consistency of a cream. Add the yoghurt. Season to taste and serve with a spoon of ricotta cheese.

Educational materials for teachers

The teacher is a profession but first of all a vocation. Nowadays it’s not an easy job that’s why we really appreciate people who are doing their profession with passion and love to children. Teachers not only educate but also bring our children up and we need to remember about their important mission.

The main objective of the project Move up to be healthy and happy is to raise awareness about healthy lifestyle of children. One of the ways of being healthy is to do sport. Teachers need to run P.E. classes in schools, because very often this is the only opportunity for children to be active during the day.

P.E. classes don’t have to be boring or difficult to run!!! Try to mix it with elements of maths and you will be surprised from the effects:)

Use our PHYSICAL EDUCATION CLASS SCENARIOS and let your work be more effective!

Simple fun episode 3: Dodgeball



Do you want to have fun, but you don’t have a lot of “sports stuff” lying around? In these series, we will present you games that can be played with just some friends and, this time, three balls. Because exercise needs to be fun and simple!



Dodgeball, a sport mostly popular in The United States, is a simple and fun game.
You need:
  • at least three balls (volleyballs work best, or any type of ball that does not hurt when you get hit by it)  
  • some sort of court – tennis, basketball, handball, volleyball   
  • at least 4 people - but the more, the better  







Step 1: Choose two teams, based on any method you like. Make sure they are of equal size (or as close as possible). 

Step 2: Place the balls on the middle line of the court, at a similar distance from one another, with teams at the opposite ends of the court.

Step 3: At the count of three, run and pick up the balls. If you got to pick up a ball, throw it towards the opposite team (but don’t aim for the head!) If you didn’t pick up a ball, RUN! Try not to get hit by the other team.

Step 4: If you get hit by an incoming ball, you are out. If you see a ball loose in your side of the court, try and pick it up, but be careful not to get hit by the opponents. If a ball falls out of the court, you can go after it, but you can’t use it unless you are back in your court. Keep playing, trying to pick up balls and hitting the other players. The team with no players left loses. 

Note: if you are holding a ball, and you see another ball flying towards you, you can use your ball to block the incoming ball, but be careful not to get hit!
