Sweet or savoury? Warm or cold? Salty or spicy? 

Recently some of our Kindergarten classes experimented with new and unfamiliar cuisines from a variety of countries at their Multicultural Food Days.

Multicultural Food Day is a culmination of the Kindergarten Term 2 Health unit on food, its importance in our lives, and its place in the lives of people around the world. The special day held at the end of the Semester, also enables Kindy students to integrate their learning with social science subjects of geography and culture.

Families generously provided a sample of food from a country of their heritage or interest. Students then presented the cuisine to the class and discussed where it originates from and what ingredients were in it. Then acting as courteous wait staff, students offered their foods around to their peers for sampling. Everyone was encouraged to try something new, and they reflected afterwards on what they tried for the first time, and what their favourite food was.

Children and their families can build relationships and friendships that carry you through your schooling years and be long lasting.
