Bloomfield’s Forest Glen School Learns About Food and Farming at Brookdale ShopRite


SRite PreK 4

Preschoolers at Bloomfield’s Forest Glen School have a gardening project, they are growing vegetables in the classroom. Pots of herbs, vines of tomatoes and tubs of carrots are changing from seeds to plants to edible produce.

This week at Brookdale ShopRite, these little farmers are learning the next step: How fruit and vegetables are sold. ShopRite Dietitian, Jessica Serdikoff, invited the youngsters to participate in a scavenger hunt to find produce sold fresh, such as broccoli, processed food like tomato sauce and frozen vegetables. Afterwards they participated in a healthy eating activity and snack related to what they had picked up.

The children enjoyed a hands on experience of learning how food moves from farm to store to table.
