What is Little People Nutrition all about?

Little People Nutrition is about nurturing the love of food in children, at home and at school.

What we stand for

At Little People Nutrition we believe that food nourishes our bodies. It also connects us with people – our families, friends, culture and community; as well as our environment – where food comes from and how it is raised and grown.

We believe that it is important to nurture the love of food in children. That by helping them gain a greater respect and understanding of it, will give them the opportunity to develop a healthy relationship with food, their community and the environment.

What we provide

We create resources for children, parents and educators to develop and enhance their know-how and understanding of where food comes from, how it is raised and grown, how to cook it and how to establish a healthy relationship with it.

These resources are in the form of incursions, workshops, food education, stories, recipes, childcare and family menus, modules, coaching & consultation, informative and interactive posts and videos.
