Our in-depth video, Fruit & Vegetable Tastings (Length: 49 minutes), documents a Cooking with Kids Salad Tasting class with fourth graders from start to finish. It is designed to train educators who plan to teach tasting lessons, including classroom teachers and others. A voiceover commentary provides teaching tips.
Research suggests that repeated exposure to healthy foods in a non-coercive environment can increase acceptance of those foods. The Cooking with Kids Fruit and Vegetable Tasting lessons are a simple way to provide these hands-on experiences to elementary school-aged children.
In each tasting class, students explore four different foods with all their senses while practicing language and math skills. Download the free bilingual Tasting lessons to enhance your use of the DVDs.
