Today is Food Assembly day
Monday is Celebration Assembly, Tuesday is Teachers Assembly, Wednesday is Food Assembly day! With many topics in school assemblies sometimes being repeated over and over, why not add a new topic...
Get the children to talk about the healthy food they like to eat, or to tell the others about any food-related experience they may have had (visited a farm, cooked something, ate something unusual on holiday, discovered where a certain food comes from, etc).
Encourage the kids to share concepts of different eating habits/dishes from the different cultures represented at the school. Get the teachers or other visitors to give examples or demonstrate simple recipes... etc! Invite local chefs to speak to the children, invite a local farmer to talk about their work... so many interesting possibilities!
… Or, as well as book week and other themed weeks when the focus of all school activity is on one topic… have a themed week all about food and cooking-related topics!
Age of kids. The solutions to changing kids’ eating behaviors will vary depending on their age. What works for a toddler won’t necessarily fly for a teenager, although we suspect some concepts might be appropriate for all ages—even adults! Which age bracket does your concept address (tick all relevant boxes)?
Pre-school (Tots) 2-4
Elementary (Kids) 5-10
Middle school (Tweens) 11-13
Hurdles to success. Helping kids make smarter food choices comes with a variety of hurdles that have to be addressed in order for a design solution to be successful, which of these do you think that your Concept overcomes (tick all relevant boxes)?
