In today’s society, talking about the physical and mental wellbeing of individuals also means referring to their nutrition, meant as attention to food and taste. Health protection therefore goes above all through the promotion of a culture of food, which is not only individual, but of the whole community.
According to Fondazione Reggio Children, the culture of taste has a strong educational value that is achieved by offering “multisensory” contexts where children and adults can explore and experience food in a welcoming space of negotiation and mutual exchange of ideas.
Through the affiliate company Pause - Atelier dei Sapori and its creative approach to food education, Fondazione supports the development of research on food and taste based on the idea that the quality of life of childhood is a paradigm of the quality of life of the entire community.
Pause – Atelier dei Sapori
Pause is the research lab of Fondazione Reggio Children dedicated to taste and wellbeing, where the relationship with food, starting from the experience of the kitchens in the Preschools and Infant-toddler Centres of Reggio Emilia, becomes multisensory and creative. The core of the project is the relationship generated between people, knowledge, taste and experience.
