Taste Education


We help schools and nurseries to deliver taste education, to give every child the opportunity to experience the joy of fresh vegetables and fruits.Β  We believe learning about food should be more carrot, less stick.

In the UK 79.1% of 5 to 10 year olds eat fewer than 3.5 portions of fruit and veg a day.

Every child deserves taste education to help them learn to enjoy the foods their body needs and reach their potential in life.
null
We provide schools and parents with the support and resources to do this.

@PenfoldNursery: The children did a fantastic job at carefully cutting the fruit for our fruit salad after reading "Oliver's Fruit Salad". When tasting it the children agreed it was 'crunchy' and 'delicious'! πŸŠπŸπŸπŸ“πŸπŸ‡@tastedfeed @safoodforlife @soilassociation @schoolgarden https://t.co/M1PpJ2jlwq

@KitchenBee: Yet more proof that children and teenagers are more likely to eat more vegetables ...when they taste good. This study found that Baltimore high school students ate 18% more vegetables when they were seasoned with spices, herbs, garlic etc. https://t.co/HDiu5Y22cF

@VegSchoolMeals @McGowanKim @jasorourke @washingborough But we are up against a huge juggernaut: a vast ultra-processed food industry which has pushed the message again and again that 'treat' can only mean packaged snacks high in sugar, fat and salt. We need to change the whole narrative on food.

@VegSchoolMeals @McGowanKim @jasorourke @washingborough We think that the big thing that needs to happen to break these negative associations is to start giving children (and adults!) the message that healthy food and pleasurable food can be one and the same. That is why we encourage children to talk about joy when trying vegetables.
