Jamie Oliver’s Learn Your Fruit and Veg (LYFV) has been created to inspire primary schools and early learning centres to get involved in food education in a practical and engaging way.
The Program is delivered by The Good Foundation.
It has been designed to put the fun back into fresh food and to change the eating habits of kids nationwide for the better.
Jamie Oliver’s LYFV engages and excites children about fresh food by teaching them simple to follow and quick to prepare recipes, using Jamie Oliver’s signature cooking tips and shortcuts.
Each lesson focuses on a hero fruit or vegetable and students are taught what the fruit or veg is, where it comes from, and how it affects their bodies.
Lessons last for 60 minutes and see children roll up their sleeves and get stuck in, smelling, touching and tasting fresh produce.
It is very easy for schools to deliver and for children to implement their learnings at home.
None of the recipes require heat or kitchen facilities.
