WONKY FRUITS & VEGETABLES CUTTING SET
PLANTOYS | 18 months & up
Did you know that mishappen produce are often misunderstood to be of 'inferior' quality and thus thrown away when in fact, they are just as good in taste and nutritional value as those that made the grocery shelves?
This year, we're proud to be involved in PlanToys' Eco Campaign for 2019 by way of its Wonky Fruits & Vegetables Cutting Set, a play aid aimed at fighting the battle against food wastage through awareness and action. Like its predecessors, this fruit cutting set provides the full host of developmental benefits from fine motor skills to early literacy and imaginative thinking - but with an extra message: to educate our young about World Food Wastage.
This meaningful play set is a joint project between PlanToys and Kromkommer, a Dutch initiative armed with a mission to increase awareness of food wastage in the world and save all the fruits and veggies that would otherwise have been thrown away because of their appearance or overproduction. (Instead of ending up in the bin, these ‘wonkies’ are saved and used in the production of soups, or even sold at its unique ‘Wonky Fruit & Vegetables Store’ in Holland.) For every set sold, PlanToys donates €1 to Kromkommer's efforts to battle food wastage.
Whether it's a lesson, game, or unstructured activity, this Wonky Fruits & Vegetables Set will go a long way in getting eco conversations started with kids of all ages: how does something as simple as not wasting food help the environment? What other small changes can we make in our day-to-day that can effect great change as well?
