Content and focus
The programme consists of five lessons per year, lasting about an hour. In each form various topics are focused on five themes: taste, eating and health, food production, consumer skills and food preparation. Experiencing and enjoyment of food are key words in the programme, in addition to giving facts. Knowledge is thereby better internalised for application. This basis will make it easier for children to make healthy and sustainable food choices later in life. They also learn better how to prepare meals and snacks. All teaching materials are streamed through the new online portal Chef!, for flexible use in schools, free of charge.
In addition to Core Taste Lessons, there are lesson modules on specific themes such as food waste, working in the school garden or protein transition. These are called Taste Missions, since the schoolchildren must complete a food mission which includes excursions to food producers or retailers.
