On May 7th 2015, Regina Tchelly was at Escolinha (School) Tia Percilia, to resume the food cycle activities with the kids. The Escolinha was founded in 1991 and, since then, helps families from Babilonia and Chapeu-Mangueira, by promoting social, cultural and educational development of the kids after school time.
In order to develop the best activities possible, the kids were divided in groups, according with ther age – from 6 to 15 years. There were 2 groups in the morning and 3 in the afternoon.
Regina Tchelly developed a Sensory Analysis Workshop with each group. The kids and the teenagers were motivated to smell the food, without touching or seeing it, and try to guess which food it was. It was really amazing! Everyone had the opportunity to increase their knowledge on food, besides getting to know different spontaneous food.
The third group also had the opportunity to count with the presence of a really special guest, Ana Ribeiro, a Brazilian chef who contributed with her enormous wisdom on food.
It was extremely productive! The kids were willing to discover new food and rediscover the ones they already knew. An amazing exchange of knowledge! Joy, curiosity and excitement!
