Welcome!
At Spoons Across America, we believe the best approach to good nutrition is to encourage children to excite all their senses and to taste new, healthy foods. Our programs actively engage children to use all their senses through hands-on experience and direct observation of food’s appearance, texture, scent, and taste. Spoons Across America strives to improve children’s relationship with food and to help them understand the long-term benefits of healthy eating. Through our nutrition-based programs, children develop a healthy food curiosity that has a lasting impact throughout their lives.
