It's long been known that twenty-first century children have no idea where their food comes from, other than from the supermarket. They may have a vague idea that milk comes from cows, but do they know all that is involved in getting it from the cow, into containers, and to the supermarket? How about cheese? Do your kids know that the cheese in a grilled cheese sandwich originally began with a cow?
This Saturday you have the opportunity to educate your children about some of the sources of their food by visiting Alvirne High School in Hudson.
Before you go see the dairy operation at Alvirne, borrow one of these for your kids:
De la Bédoyère, Camilla. Cows. [J 636.2 DEL]
Green, Emily K. Cows. [E GRE]
Murphy, Andrea. Out and About at the Dairy Farm. [JP MUR]
Parker, Victoria. All about Dairy. [J 641.37 PAR]
Adults and older kids might benefit from viewing the DVD Food, Inc. [DVD 338.4 FOO]
