Online Greek Food display!
Our online home-schooled children have been learning about different types of food in Ancient Greece.
Food in Ancient Greece included some of the following: grains, wheat, barley, fruit, vegetables, breads, and cake.
The Ancient Greeks grew olives, grapes, figs and wheat and kept goats, for milk and cheese. They ate lots of bread, beans and olives.
Most Greeks were farmers and they ate the food that they grew. Since Greece had a mild climate, they were able to grow many different fruits and vegetables.
The children took part in a cooking activity to explore the different types of foods which involved a tasting experience.
