When students at London’s Charlton Manor Primary School learn about history, they use chocolate. In math class, they weigh and measure fruit smoothies. For a lesson in shapes and sizes, they utilize bananas and grapes. Taking inspiration from world-renowned chef and TED prize winner Jamie Oliver, head teacher Timothy Baker began incorporating food into all subjects at the primary school. By making food an integral part of the curriculum, Baker hopes to teach children the importance of valuing food and cultivating healthy eating habits. The school has even built its own vegetable patch, chicken coop and beehive to harvest honey. Because of the efforts of those like Baker and Oliver, education is feeding not only the minds, but also the stomachs of the next generation.

This Great Big Story is made in collaboration with TED.
