Week of the Young Child: Tasty Tuesday
WEEK OF THE YOUNG CHILD: TASTY TUESDAY
This fun, food-themed day is about more than just cheese and crackers. Cooking together connects math with literacy skills, science, and more. With the rise in childhood obesity, we can encourage healthy nutrition and fitness habits at home and in the classroom.
What does Tasty Tuesday look like across our Early Learning programs?
Wearing food-themed items of clothing, our kids made trail mix with pretzels, marshmallows, Cheerios, and raisins! For dessert, we mixed yogurt and Jell-o for edible paint. By following recipes and measuring ingredients, we incorporated math and science into cooking.

Let’s mix, measure, and engage in the process of cooking and eating! Our kids and their parents made smoothies and fruit pops, and we encouraged families to explore another culture by trying a new recipe.
