Edible Education and Green Monkey Make Nutrition an Everyday Occurrence

Edible Education focuses on healthy nutritional alternatives that take advantage of local food products.

In our continuing series on healthy, nutritious eating and in response to many reader’s questions about teaching kids the value of healthy eating, we explored Edible Education and what they have to offer.

Edible Education

Edible Education offers hands-on lessons for healthy living and they are in the business of teaching important nutritional, food source, and cooking information to everyone. They focus on supporting family health through healthy food choices and they support teachers, organizations and farmers.

Thanks to Edible Education, there is a source for exciting food preparation that is based on basic skill sets, etiquette, and delicious menu preparation. In 4 week sessions, people of all ages – including kids – learn about healthy nutritional choices.
