Make 'Food' a mandatory subject in Primary school

Make 'Food' a mandatory subject in Primary school

We need a food subject in primary schools to teach our children the value and importance of food.

Why is this important?

Food as a subject would be broad and encompass different aspects of food, from cooking to growing, from history to culture. A food subject will promote healthier eating, the local economy and our connection to nature.
