Exploring Food Together

We are passionate about nurturing the relationship children have with food.

We believe that the exposure and exploration of food, in both mealtime and non-mealtime settings, supports this relationship in a positive way.

And so, we create activities and resources to support children’s exploration of food, at home and school.

Introducing our Foodie Nature playgroup!

Our playgroup is all about nurturing the love of food through exploring it in nature.

Children and families are invited to explore food through music, story, cooking, gardening and the arts. With a heavy dose of free, unstructured play.
