The best part of a young child’s day is often opening a lunchbox and diving in. But how did all that delicious food get there? Who made the bread for the sandwich? What about the cheese inside? Who plucked the fruit? And where did the chocolate in that cookie get its start? From planting wheat to mixing flour into dough, climbing trees to machine-squeezing fruit, picking cocoa pods to stirring a vat of melted bliss, here is a clear, engaging look at the steps involved in producing some common foods. Healthy tips and a peek at basic food groups complete the menu.

How Did That Get in My Lunchbox? : The Story of Food
On one hand, I want to feed that beautiful, natural, and very earnest curiosity, and on the other hand, OHMYGOD just give me five minutes in my waking day without asking me any questions. Now you might think that this phase ends and you can move on. But noooo, my friend. Again, noooo. Oh, look, a sandwich! Made with bread! And cheese!
However, most kids understand that milk comes from cows, apples grow on trees and corn grows in the field. Students often know that food is grown on farms, but may have very little understanding of what happens to food between the farm and the grocery store, or what natural ingredients, whether from plants or animals, are used to make some of our favorite foods. The food system spans the activities, people and resources involved in getting food from field to plate. Along the way, it intersects with aspects of public health, equity and the environment, which can make for engaging and challenging learning opportunities. The complex nature of our food system can make it a difficult study for younger learners, without a dedicated unit of study.
