22 Oct Te Taonga nei te Kumara – the gift of Kumara
5+ A Day Charitable Trust has released a new story book for young children that showcases kai hauora (healthy food) and traditional Māori knowledge.
Te Taonga nei te Kūmara (The Gift of Kūmara) will be made available to all Kōhanga Reo to meet the demand for nutrition resources in Te Reo. The story also includes an English interpretation.
“Research shows that when tamariki are involved and aware of how to grow produce they are more likely to eat it,” says 5+ A Day Project Manager Carmel Ireland.
