In our society today, 1 in 3 children are on a fast track to develop Type 2 Diabetes. And an overwhelming majority of the children in our cities have never actually seen a real farm animal. Loving Hands Children’s home aims to introduce children to “The Farm” and common animals found on the farm that contribute to healthy nutrition. An “Intro To Life on The Farm” field trip will offer an introduction to healthy organic nutrition and it’s benefits via our Edible Forest, Grant a meet and greet with some of our selected animal family and provide a stress free break on the farm from life in the big city.
Farm visits are essential in teaching the story and benefits of healthy food. The farm will serve as an extension of the classroom, which will acquaint the children with common farm animals and their contribution to healthy eating, as well as fruits and vegetables and the growing process. The experience will draw a connection between plants and animals on the farm and the food that we eat. Our aim is to teach children about natural and healthy food choices which will lend itself to better life choices as they grow and continue to learn. It all begins now, with our children and education. This enables minds to open and grow for a better tomorrow.
Some of the activities that the visiting children will participate in include:
Making their very own butter
Harvesting and tasting treats from the Edible Forest
Visiting the animal habitats, to learn about common farm animals like the chickens, pigs, rabbits, goats, etc.
