On Food

Early Childhood Education and Food Education go hand in hand, don't you think?  Many teachers cook with their students, be it something to share for snack or an activity for children to do.  We make soup, bread, juice, pasta, hummus...because its fun and all of the children love to participate.

There are bigger reasons to cook with children.  I appreciated this TED talk by Jamie Oliver - it is a call for teachers to step up to this challenge.

And related..."Green Parenting" and creating healthy eaters from The New York Times.
