Food play ideas and STEAM activities that grow confident healthy kids

Discover

Learning about food can be fun. Discover how to make food exploration inexpensive and minimize waste.

Nourish

Food play and learning is more than just cute cut-outs. Create amazing memories by nourishing their mind, body and relationships.

Grow

Kids are curious. Some just need a guide to get them started. See your kids’ confidence grow when they’re open to try new foods and experiences with you.

Children’s palates are based on senses and experiences.

Early feeding, cultural background, taste-bud memory, visual presentation, knowledge, and preconception all influence taste and beliefs about food.

We all want to raise healthy, happy eaters.

That’s why I created this guidebook series, to help parents just like you and me. My mission is to help parents bring hands-on learning and sensory engagement into food education to foster curiosity, transforming picky kids into adventurous eaters.

Put your Food Explorer hats on and join our funny characters in search of delicious as we discover new foods using our five senses.

This colorful and playful guidebook series for kids teaches fun facts from farm to fork.
