Village Table Nutrition Curriculum

Lesson 2: Foods that help me grow: Vegetables

Lesson 2 of the Village Table nutrition curriculum exposes the children to vegetables. They will learn about similarities, differences, explore characteristics, and learn about the different colors they need to eat to help them grow. We use real images to increase exposure, which has been shown to increase familiarity and the likelihood that children will consume them.
