Honey Education for Kids!
Sharing information about honey, bees, and beekeeping is a good place to start honey education for kids. In this way, children learn about the foundations of production, processing, and distribution of real food. Often families no longer work organic gardens and process and can or freeze some of the food they grow. So, honey education websites, videos, audios, and books are good alternatives for parents to educate their children about the importance of eating and participating in growing/processing real food. These resources also highlight the significance of bees and other pollinators who support the real food chain.
