PEAS Healthy Eating Activities

Example PEAS Healthy Eating Activity


The PEAS Healthy Eating Activities are short, 20-minute activities that consist of reading a book about a vegetable and completing a short cooking activity with preschool children in the classroom. Each of the activities are focused on a vegetable that already appears in the PEAS model science learning activities, found in the PEAS Teaching Guide, that are implemented by classroom teachers. The PEAS Healthy Eating Activities are intended to be implemented by other preschool center support staff, such as Health Specialists, to further children’s exposure to healthy foods and exposure to science learning through cooking.
