Food culture – what do kids eat around the world
Introduce host families to different customs about food and snack . APs can bring food, do a slide show, make a presentation board with what is typically served to children in their countries. Do they eat at school, do they bring their lunches, and what type of snacks are offered to them? This could be an eye opener for many American host families who expect their APs to know what to do with a jar of peanut butter and jelly or the host family who gets appalled when the au pair serves a slice of bread and a piece of chocolate for snack.
