Flavour School Ireland

Deirdre from FLAVOUR SCHOOL IRELAND (and The Cool Food School) is coming in to 4th class at the moment to teach them about healthy food choices. Deirdre is working with Ms. Smith and her class and she is teaching the ‘Sapere’ method. ‘Sapere’ is a sensory food education programme and the children are learning about food through their senses. You can find out more HERE The children are experimenting with new foods and learning all about them. They are discussing language to describe these foods and they will get to taste some delicious, healthy food as well. Deirdre will work with this class for 10 weeks and would welcome any feedback from the students and parents involved as she is hoping to get funding soon so she can reach more children and encourage healthy attitudes towards food. Here is a picture of some of the food (and notebooks to record their work) that Deirdre brought in for her first class in Room 19.
