Eat the Rainbow: Nutrition & Agriculture in the Garden State
Join Elyse from Farmers Against Hunger and Jeanne, Registered Dietitian from Virtua for a hands-on workshop, designed for ages 7-10, that features valuable cooking and nutrition lessons focused on colorful NJ-grown fruits and vegetables. Class will consist of 3 different components: planting, nutrition and cooking. Participants will discover why New Jersey is nicknamed “The Garden State”, build appreciation for agriculture, knowledge around food sources and plant anatomy, and how they get from farm to table. Students will be introduced to healthy eating guidelines and basic cooking concepts, and learn how they can help care for themselves, others and their environment by making smart food choices.
