Growing Up Global: Raising Children to Be At Home in the World – Book Summary

Break Bread

  • An easy way to increase global awareness it to look for ways that your children can experience food from other cultures. Homa offers many resources and ideas to help. Most people live in or near cities that feature restaurants with foreign themes such as Chinese, Indian, or Mexican. Many churches sell foods from the homelands of their parishioners to raise money and provide memories of home. Thanks to her many travels, Homa provides eating details from a number of countries in this chapter along with a lesson on how to use chopsticks. I’ve seen this lesson done with second graders who had a lot of fun with it. It is important to encourage children to try food they haven’t experienced. There are children’s cookbooks that feature international food. You can also work with your school to encourage less fast food, more healthy food, and food with an international flavor. There is no reason that lunch can’t be part of the curriculum.
