why

Our kids will make choices about food every day of their life. While they are young, eating habits are still being formed and there is an eagerness to learn. Let’s give them the tools to develop a lifelong skill that impacts their health in a positive way.

how

Grade appropriate, interactive lessons use math, science, and art to teach kids about food. We’ll discover rainbows, fractions and chemical reactions.e

Example of the Curriculum:

early childhood…Where do fruits + vegetables grow on the plant? What are the benefits + drawbacks of processing food?

elementary… How do you read an ingredient statement? A nutrition facts panel? How much sugar is in your favorite beverage?

middle school… Food + flavorings. What type of reaction turns milk into cheese? Cream into ice cream?

Where We've Been:

Bergman Academy • Christ the King School • Hanawalt Elementary School • Plymouth Nursery School
Sacred Heart Catholic School • St. Augustin Catholic School • Waukee YMCA Camp

What The Teachers Say:

Students wanted to share what they learned with one another. A lot of them talked about this activity for days afterward! The information presented is invaluable and children have a right to know what is in the food that they are eating/being provided. I think a huge “eye-opener’ was listening to them try to pronounce the ingredients off the label.
— Kristel Kautzky, Middle School Teacher
It was an excellent lesson that encouraged students to grow in knowledge and were able to use tactile and classification to identify fruits and vegetables. Students also played a role in cleaning, cutting and eating fruits.
— Cathy Gleichman, Kindergarten Teacher
