Nutrition Connections is hosting an upcoming food education webinar, Getting Kids’ Hands Dirty: Experiential Approaches to Food Education, on Thursday, January 23, 2020, at 12 p.m. EST.

In the webinar, participants will hear from two leading Ontario-based food education programs for young children. Janet Nezon will discuss the approach behind Rainbow Plate, a joyful sensory-based approach to food literacy education in the early years, and Andrew Fleet, Executive Director of Growing Chefs! Ontario, will discuss his London, Ontario-based program offering a variety of food education projects to get kids and communities excited about healthy, wholesome food.

The webinar will explore:

  • Effective strategies for helping children build positive relationships with food, enjoy a healthy and varied diet, and learn about the broader food system
  • The evidence behind sensory-based and experiential food education
  • Opportunities, challenges, and successes in children’s food literacy on the ground
  • How food education can be connected to the Ontario school curriculum
