Lesson 4: Foods that help me grow: Grains

Lesson 4 of the Village Table nutrition curriculum exposes the children to grains. They will learn about similarities, differences, and explore characteristics of the different grains needed to help them grow. They will learn how we process and prepare grains to create foods that we can eat. We use real images to increase exposure, which has been shown to increase familiarity and the likelihood that children will consume them.
