This practical, illustrated guide provides early years learning educators with an introduction to pleasurable food education. Teaching young children all about food – where it comes from, how we make and share it, and what fresh, seasonal dishes taste like – can help them develop positive food habits for life.
Pleasurable food education is fun. It’s hands-on, and teaches children useful skills. The activities, recipes and advice in this book stem from years of experience teaching children of all ages to appreciate fresh food, grow their own vegetables, herbs and fruit, and establish positive food relationships.
Organised into themes, this book supports educators working within the context of the Australian Government’s Early Years Learning Framework, which aims to support children to become successful and confident learners, and individuals who can be active participants in their community. It also supports early childhood settings achieve the Quality Areas of the National Quality Standard.
