An Adventure with FOOD
Slow Food UK believes a significant way to constructively address these societal issues is through education and positive engagement with healthy, nutritious food. Slow Food UK’s Taste Adventure encourages children to think about food in an entirely new way and consider why it is important to diversify their diet.
The Taste Adventure enables children (of all ages) to discover the excitement of tasting, sniffing and feeling food by travelling through five interactive zones, each with a focus on one of our five senses: see, hear, smell, touch & taste. Young Taste Adventurers receive a passport complete with fun food cartoon characters and collect stamps as they make new food discoveries.
When we enjoy food, we use all 5 of our senses!
SEE, HEAR, SMELL, TOUCH, TASTE
The activity is run by local groups, and the educational kit can also be made readily available to anyone, so that Taste Adventures can be run by volunteers at festivals, schools and even markets. Demonstrating that food can be fun, exciting and enjoyable is an important step in encouraging children to take an interest in what they eat.
