RATED BY PARENTS
RATED BY TEACHERS
To create through food an environment where every child feels included in the classroom.
Cooking activities connect children from different cultures with native children in a creative way. We express ourselves through food since we are children. Inclusion is built upon different cuisines shared in the class.
What We Found
Children feel a connection through cooking their food. The food fosters inclusion with everyone. By sharing dishes from different countries the school is brought together.
How to Start
Plan a breakfast or lunch with your classroom. Ask each child if they can bring a savoury or sweet dish to share. Perhaps, a few can do a cooking demonstration of a simple dish. Everyone can try some of each food brought or prepared. You can incorporate international music for a fun vibe.
