Take a Taste with Spoons is a three-session food and nutrition literacy program for 3rd graders. Each lesson focuses upon a different theme—elements of taste, healthy beverages, and nutritious snacks—providing opportunities for students to taste, prepare, and share food with their classmates.
Each lesson concludes with a shared snack or drink, and time is given for children to write or draw a reflection in their Spoons’ journal. Children bring home a family newsletter with recipes, suggestions for related reading, games, conversations starters, and a recipe to encourage them to prepare and talk about food with their families.
Each session is hands-on, provides opportunities for cooking and tasting, and connects to Common Core Learning Standards.
