The Journey of the Banana | From Plant to Plate | Healthy Eating and Nutrition

This From Plant to Plate Unit: The Journey of the Banana will help students understand that most food, bought in stores and eaten by them, comes from farms. Students will explore the food to table process.

Looking at the connections between food, health, society and the environment, students can begin to imagine how what we eat, determines how the world is used.
Food takes a complex journey from its origins on farms, ranches, rivers, oceans and other sources to consumers’ plates. Along the way, it passes through the hands of producers, processors, transporters, warehouse operators, retailers, consumers and waste handlers. This unit will enable students to begin to explore this complex process.
