We would like to thank our team of teachers with decades of experience who have worked hard to put together these lesson plans for teachers across New Zealand to spread healthy eating education.
The lesson plans have been created specific to certain ages.
In this lesson, we have created an in-depth look into one of the most essential foods in the world: Bread. For the younger students, we look into the basic facts, ingredients and steps that go into bread. For the older students, we compare different bread types and delve into yeast and the variety of flours.

We've also created some activities for children of all ages (these links are also on the 'Activities' tab of our Educational Resources Hub).
In this lesson, we are focusing in on the nutritional aspects of the foods that we eat or should be eating in a healthy and balanced diet. We have the kids understanding food groups, the importance of the different colours of food. With the older children we start to look into the packaging of food and how that interacts with our buying habits.
