Fruits and vegetables all taste great,
but how did they end up on your plate?
The fresh and colorful foods you know
came from farms—that’s where they grow!
Some grow underground and some hang from trees.
Can you find them all? Let’s look and see!

Every fruit, vegetable, grain, and legume has its own story: Where do they grow? How do they taste? And how do they impact our bodies and the world around us? In cooperation with Kitchen Connection, an organization committed to improving our food system through education, this colorful picture book introduces readers to the concepts of biodiversity, reducing food waste, and proper growing conditions for different crops in simple, accessible language. With cool facts and challenges throughout, fun rhyming verse, and charming illustrations, How Does Our Food Grow? tells the stories of more than a dozen of your favorite fresh foods. Knowing that our food choices make a difference in our health and the health of our planet empowers us to choose wisely. The more we know, the better we grow.

Praise For…

This book should be in every home, every library, and every classroom to teach our children how the food they eat affects their bodies and the planet. How Does Our Food Grow? aims at encouraging curiosity and responsibility around our food choices and practices from a young age.—Ambassador Pio Wennubst, Switzerland

Along with ensuring all children have access to a nutritious meal at school, The School Meals Coalition seeks to foster an understanding of food and healthy and sustainable behaviours that can extend beyond school, and into children’s families and communities throughout their lives. How Does Our Food Grow? is a helpful tool in this educational process as it reinforces healthy food habits in a fun, visual, and relatable way.—School Meals Coalition, an initiative of Governments supported by the United Nations World Food Programme

Children are the future of our world, and educating them about how food is grown gives them the power to make decisions that will transform the world's agrifood systems forever. This book is a fantastic tool in ensuring just that, and we can't wait to see it in schools globally.—Kazuki Kitaoka, Global Coordinator of the World Food Forum and Vice Chair of the Food and Agriculture Organization Youth Committee
