How does food keep our bodies healthy? Why should we "eat a rainbow" every day? Students explore these questions with activities focused on the science of healthy foods. A "tasting lab" activity puts special emphasis on the importance of eating a variety of fruits and vegetables.
NOTE: The "tasting lab" activity involves smelling and tasting a variety of fruits and vegetables. If a student has food allergies or sensitivities, please email email@example.com to indicate restrictions at least one week before the lab day. We will substitute appropriate non-allergenic materials.
This program takes place in the Discovery Lab in the Science Playground Exhibit Hall. Combine this program with a field trip to the museum.
