From Picky Eaters to Veggie Lovers
|Vegetables are an important source of essential vitamins and minerals to support children’s growth, development and health.
|Did you know only 28% of two- to three-year-olds are eating the recommended two and a half serves of vegetables per day.
Long day care centres have a wonderful opportunity to increase children’s vegetable intake by providing the opportunity to learn about a variety of vegetables and support fussy eaters by using their senses to explore foods.
|How can this be achieved?
|VegKIT have developed a curriculum resource called Taste & Learn.
They aim to:
- Provides educators with lesson plans and activities to teach children about vegetables in a fun and engaging way.
- Deliver an integrated program of research and development activities to increase children’s vegetable intake.
