Make your child food aware at this experiential and fun event in Mumbai

Museum of Solutions, the unique children’s museum in Mumbai, is excited to announce the second edition of the interactive 'Food and Beverage Investigator' Programme. This unique initiative aims to create awareness among children about junk food and food marketing lies. The programme takes children through an experiential learning journey to make them ‘food aware.’
Children get the opportunity to learn and practice four rules that will make them conscious of the food they eat and empower them to make better choices. The second edition will be organised on May 26, 2024, from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm at the Museum of Solutions in Lower Parel, Mumbai.

The inaugural programme was attended by an enthusiastic bunch of children from schools like Dhirubai Ambani International, Ascend International, and Vibgyor. The second edition will aim to further spread the message of identifying food that is good for one's health. This initiative will be hosted by Shashank Mehta, Founder of The Whole Truth Foods, and is open to children in the age group of seven to 12 years.

Abhik Bhattacherji, director of marketing, Museum of Solutions expressed his enthusiasm for the upcoming programme, and said, "We are delighted to collaborate with The Whole Truth Foods for the second edition of the 'Food and Beverage Investigator’ programme.' By combining hands-on interactive experiences with valuable nutritional insights, we aim to foster a healthier generation through education and practical engagement."

Shashank Mehta, founder and CEO, The Whole Truth Foods, shared his excitement about the partnership, stating, "We think children will change the world of food for the better. And we want them to have all the knowledge they need. So we intend to teach 1000 kids, the rules of choosing clean food and telling marketing lies, over the next year. This will equip kids to be the influencers in their own homes and schools-- everyone will eat clean, and this will be led by children."

Central to the Food and Beverage Investigator Programme’s curriculum is the concept of clean eating – a philosophy championed by The Whole Truth Foods that emphasises the importance of consuming whole, minimally processed foods free from artificial additives and preservatives. Children will learn how to decipher ingredient labels, identify chemicals in packaged foods, and will be given the responsibility to investigate the packaged food. Children will come out of this programme having passed the four levels and graduating as ‘Food and Beverage Investigators.’
