We specialize in the 5 Senses Method, a hands-on educational program taught with The Amazing Journey of Clarence Carrot workbook dedicated to teaching young children taste discovery and development, and a lifetime of healthy eating habits.

In addition to our youth-focused educational program, we work with caregivers of all ages to create a healthy food program focused on taste development and wellness for children taught in a fun and playful method.

The Amazing Journey of Clarence Carrot

The Amazing Journey of Clarence Carrot workbook is a new educational program designed for educators, parents, caregivers and anyone interested in promoting healthy eating habits in children.

The program encourages children to look at food differently: with curiosity and wonder – opening their minds towards unknown deliciousness while learning how to keep their bodies healthy.

Clarence Carrot Book by Chris Mahoney

In the first part of the workbook you will find information on nutrition and taste development, how to get parents involved and how to create great taste fun. Then, five engaging stories follow Clarence Carrot as he encourages listeners to participate in activities to become Taste Champions just like him.

With our hands-on approach, little ones experience tasting healthy foods using the 5 Senses Method, a process that presents taste introduction in a fun and playful way.

Adults and children enjoy traveling with Clarence to a world of new scents, colors, flavors, and lots of fun!

The Program

Teaching about nutrition to young children is the key to developing healthy eating habits.

The Amazing Journey of Clarence Carrot program is for anyone interested in cultivating healthy eating habits in an easy, fun approach to taste development.

For teachers and educators of children ages 4 to 8, it offers easy-to-understand information on nutrition, simple recipes and hands-on activities encouraging young palates to develop their taste buds and become Taste Champions. Plus, the workbook is ideal for new parents, a grandparent or caregiver involved in feeding little ones as young as four months old (when we begin to introduce new foods).

Clarence Carrot motivates kids to taste a colorful, beneficial world of fruits and veggies using stories, games and activities. Stories and “Do and Think” activities focus on observing food and learning about nutrition.

The Amazing Journey of Clarence Carrot workbook is supported with a Tool Box filled with pictures and a material taught in the workbook. The program can be used in day care centers, schools, hospitals, scouting programs, summer camps and many other child-focused environments.

The 5 senses method

Join Clarence and his friends on this Amazing Journey and get inspired to help children become Taste Champions.

This book is packed with ideas that challenge young children to use their 5 senses. All 5 senses are used to explore and discover new, yummy things to eat.

Through listening, playing, crafting, making music, moving, smelling and tasting, kids will absorb information to promote good health for their entire lives!
