Food education is often neglected in today’s society.
Yet, it’s one of the most fundamental basics of everyday life. How you eat, what you eat and understanding where your food comes from are important aspects to living a healthy lifestyle.
In fact, many chronic diseases can be traced back to unhealthy eating habits.
In Japan, one elementary school located in Saitama uses it’s lunch as an educational period, the same it would for math or reading class.
During this 45-minute period, the children of the school learn how to cook, grow and practice gratefulness for the meals they are about to eat.
What’s so impressive about this educational process is the extensive planning that went into making this learning process friendly and fun.
In this video, the students learned how to cook fish with pear sauce, mashed potatoes and five-vegetable soup. Doesn’t that sound delicious?
Just take a look at the video bellow and see for yourself!
