It makes sense to impart a healthy attitude towards food and the environment starting at a young age. I wish more schools could make room for this kind of education.
Mac Cagle's comment, May 7, 2013 2:42 AM
I like the idea of schools having a more direct connection with the world, as well as local industry. The teaching of food and where it comes from at this age is also good.
Andrea Coppinger's comment, May 7, 2013 7:25 PM
I think it's really cool that they are enforcing this way of thinking at such a young age. For children its super important to learn the difference between healthy and unhealthy foods.
