Village Table Nutrition Curriculum

Lesson 5: Foods that help me grow: Protein

Lesson 5 of the Village Table nutrition curriculum exposes the children to protein foods. They will learn about the different sources (plant and animal) and how they help our bodies grow. We use real images to increase exposure, which has been shown to increase familiarity and the likelihood that children will consume them.
