Let’s get students excited about food! Where does our food come from? How do we support students in their journey of food literacy? Can nutrition education be taught with a cross-curricular approach? Explore these questions through our newest program “Food Explorers”. Food Explorers encourages kindergarten and grade one students to have fun exploring a variety of foods through the mysteries of tastes, textures, and colours. Join this interactive teacher workshop and receive a full, cross curricular, nutrition education program to deliver in your classroom. Food Explorers includes teacher, student, and parent materials.
