Welcome

TasteWise Kids offers children fun ways to learn about food and inspire a lifetime of positive, healthy eating habits. We empower children to think about food in new ways, to explore their own sense of taste and to realize that flavorful, nutritious food and good health go together – naturally. Kids get to see first-hand where food comes from and learn about the importance of agriculture and respecting their environment.
