Food Literacy Progression: A Framework of Food Literacy Development for Children and Youth from 2-18 Years
I am so excited to launch the new Food Literacy Progression for Children and Youth from 2-18 Years! The Food Literacy Progression provides an organizational framework for food literacy development from ages 2-18 years. The Progression is a tool that can be used to support food education by demonstrating the importance and range of food-related capabilities in human development and the progression of knowledge, skills and attitudes required to become food literate. The Progression can be used in school and community settings by educators to develop and evaluate food education programs and initiatives. Program developers can use the Progression to plan and advocate for food literacy education and resources.
