We live in a world where everything is handed to us in an instant. But if something were to go terribly wrong, would we be able to build the world from the ground up? With that being said, planting and growing one’s food must be taught to kids in school.
Aside from learning this important life skill, it also encourages “food empathy,” which makes kids healthier by helping them understand nutrition more. Also, children develop responsibility, understanding, and reasoning while taking care of plants. It’s also a creative physical activity where kids can cooperate with other kids while getting in touch with nature.
Growing their own food will make children appreciate organic food, which will help lead them to live healthier and avoid food-related diseases such as obesity, heart disease, and diabetes. Teaching gardening in school is like hitting two birds with one stone, as it’s both fun and healthy!
