Flying Start, Carrots and the Love Local Food Van!

Love Local Food is developing its outreach work with children's groups exploring vegetables, healthy eating and farms through cooking, creating and stories. I am working with Jo on a series of sessions in partnership with the Flying Start Children's Centre visiting lots of groups across Central Exeter. Today we braved the snow and ice and dropped in on the St Davids Church Toddler Group. Great fun! It was so good to work with very young children's attention and interest. Piling up carrots, washing and chopping them, printing, soup making (very welcome on a cold day!) and a little story about the colours of carrots. I am looking forward to seeing this project develop. This is a rather nice image from Wikipedia just in case you thought that all carrots were orange!
