Conquer the Galaxy of the 5 senses

A galaxy with five “food” planets, one for each of the senses, that you can print or project onto an interactive whiteboard—it’s a fun way to introduce healthy eating to preschoolers!

More than a poster—a fun and educational tool!

Take your preschoolers on a mission to discover the importance of each of the five senses when cooking and eating. From the “squeak, squeak” sound of cheese curds and the unique texture of a pineapple rind to the vanilla scent of homemade muffins, the bright-orange colour of a pumpkin and the delicious taste of blueberry yogurt—when it comes to food, all the senses play an active role!

Tips from our team!

The five senses and where foods come from are two great topics to explore with preschoolers. They can spark interest and encourage learning, while promoting the development of knowledge, assertiveness, a sense of taste and likes and dislikes!
