People and programs
We believe that teaching kids where their food comes from and how to choose and prepare it is key to helping them develop healthy eating habits for life. Recently, we talked to six amazing Food Superheroes about what they have learned in programs at their Community Food Centre. Check out what Jasmine, a 10-year-old from Perth, ON, had to say:
Superhero name: Chocolate Fairy
Best new food skill: Squeezing every last drop of juice out of limes!
Where she learned it: The Youth Drop-in Program partnership with The Table Community Food Centre, where kids learn new food skills, try new foods, and build confidence in the kitchen.
New food she’s tried for the first time: Swirly noodles and meatballs.
One thing she learned that she didn’t know before: I’ve learned how to cook better.
How eating/sharing something she cooked herself makes her feel: It makes me feel active and happy that I made it on my own.
If you had to tell other kids one thing about why it’s important to eat healthy, what would it be? If you eat healthy, you’ll have a better life.
