Food as an Educational Tool
Food and food preparation provide valuable opportunities for educating children. Food is not just for survival and satisfying our physical needs, food is also part of our social life. Food is an educational tool that helps children to adapt to their family, culture, and community by offering sensorial experiences, enriching language, refining movements, encouraging independence, and, most importantly, feeling part of their community. Join us for a workshop where together we will explore different tools to help children to have a better approach to food.
