Where Does My Food Come From?
Discovering where our food comes from is an important part of nutrition education. Understanding how food goes from farm to table has been shown to have a positive impact on preschooler understanding of food and willingness to try fruits and vegetables.
- Most of the foods we eat comes from farms.
- Vegetables, fruits, grains, and some protein foods come from plants. They must be planted, harvested, and taken to stores for us to buy them.
- Dairy and some protein foods come from animals. Farmers care for the animals that give us these foods.
- Fish and other seafood come from lakes and oceans.
