Organic food and children

Kindergarten Kanarinac Kanarinac Hill, where children grow berries, peas, potatoes, bliss and green salad, is one of the few in Belgrade where fruits and vegetables are grown according to the principles of organic agriculture. The adoption of proper eating habits at this age, through the personal engagement of the little ones, is part of the Azbuka good habits project, which Novak Djokovic Foundation.

As the preschool period is crucial for achieving proper eating habits, the Foundation’s goal is for children and their parents to learn more about healthy foods and their breeding, food composition and methods of preparing them. We are provided with the right way to show children what are the proper eating habits. From the very beginning, the children participated in all phases – from the formation of a garden with organic soil, planting, growth monitoring, to workshops where they were cooking with their parents and tasting dishes from vegetables harvested in the garden. By team and continuous work, children were familiarized with the various habits and habits of healthy eating daily.

  1. Really nice idea! And then the kids will learn to treasure food more.
    We have a joke here, about a dad bringing a kid to a farm and pointed at an apple on the tree and say “that’s a mango” and the kid replied, “mango don’t look like that! They’re square cubes!”…

    And I agree with varda42… we need some sort of bacteria to train the immune system …

  2. Yes, I think it’s very important for children to eat healthily and know where our food comes from. Letting them help with the growing of the vegetables and fruits certainly does educate them and help them in understanding where our food comes from.
