 The elementary school aims to "build a healthy body that supports the power to live", and offers food education classes by school dietitians and food education experiences in collaboration with nearby supermarkets.In addition to incorporating local vegetables into school lunches, we also introduce producers and develop efforts to foster a feeling of gratitude for local production for local consumption and producers.

And on the 16th, the 3rd week class "Lecture and demonstration of how to make soup stock" was held.The children sharpened the dried bonito flakes with a shaving machine, used the dried bonito flakes to take the soup stock, and compared it with the dried sardines soup stock.
