The Kidco Kitchen is proud to have worked with our amazing ECE’s to create a nutrition curriculum for our Kidco Children. We believe nutrition education is integral to children continuing on a path of healthy eating throughout life. Our curriculum focuses on three main areas: where food comes from, exploring foods through the senses and how food affects our bodies. By educating children on the basics of food nutrition, it empowers them to make healthy food choices beginning at a young age.

Our curriculum launched in February 2015 and the positive effects were instantaous! Children were more interested in what they were eating, and more willing to try new foods after discussing them. We explore a new food or nutrition topic each month, with weekly lessons that are used in all of our classrooms. Our curriculum schedule for 2017 is as follows:

  • January: Plump Potatoes
  • February: Crazy Carrots
  • March: Exploring the Food Groups
  • April: Bean Bonanza
  • May: Bouncing Breads
  • June: Marvelous Melons

  • August: Charming Corn
  • September: Awesome Apples

  • November: Cheery Chicken
