Kid Friendly Fermentation Deb Norris

Special Topics:
Sponsor: Addison County Early Childhood Network
Instructor: Emily Landenberger

We all know how kid-friendly fermented foods are, right? Kids can’t wait to try that fresh batch of spicy kimchi or dig into that funky sour-smelling sauerkraut, right? Okay, seriously, it's tricky to get kids excited to try new things, but we also know that the more we involve them in the process, the more likely they are to give it a try. And as we learn more about the critical connections between the gut, brain, and immune system and appreciate the critical role these connections play in kids' health and well-being, it feels important to introduce kids to the wonders of fermented foods at an early age. With this in mind, I've put together a fun, easy, and very kid-friendly fermentation kit that I hope you'll enjoy sharing with your class. In this workshop, we'll explore ways to put this kit to use with your students to get them excited and involved in the process of making fermented foods.
