This is a picture of some enthusiastic young readers who are very excited about their new book. St Anne’s School are the currently leading the way for the rest of New Zealand with their participation in a new food education program I have developed called ‘What’s for Lunch?’
The program works with the primary school curriculum to teach children about making healthy choices. The pupils learn about a new healthy food mainly vegetables every week through an interactive story, science experiment, recipe and worksheet. The program launched at the beginning of 2014 and is in use in many schools throughout the lower north island.
