November 6-10 was Tasting Week at Juana Briones. Our students took part in the “Exploring Your Five Senses” program, an interactive experience that exposes children to the exciting world of foods. It is intended to education and encourage children to enjoy a wide variety of foods with the goal of improving lifelong health.
Nutrition specialists and chefs from some of the area’s best-known restaurants and led workshops to explore questions like: Do you know what makes food taste good? Did you know that our taste buds can sense five tastes: sweet, salty, sour, bitter and umami? Did you know that salt tastes different, depending on where it’s from?
