We want to deliver Pleasurable Food Education. What do we need to do to get started?
The goal of pleasurable food education is for every child to form positive food habits, for life. The focus is for children to have a ‘hands-on’ experience in cooking, gardening and sharing a meal together so that they adopt lifelong skills and learn to love real, nutritious food. They also do a lot of learning along the way.
The following informatin sheets provide practical advice and ideas to help your school or centre take the first steps towards delivering pleasurable food education.
