Edible Education was created in 2014 by Emma Martin. Emma is a mother of 2 young children, and having grown up as an overweight child herself, is quite passionate about nutrition in children.
Edible Education is where nutrition and education merge. Its core focus is to educate children about healthy eating and where food comes from. We believe that education can lead to a change in the food behaviour of children and in turn, decrease levels of overweight and obesity. Our products are designed for use in both a school and home environment, as we firmly believe that food education should have its foundations in the home with parents.
Emma grew up in rural New South Wales, and upon completion of a Bachelor of Agricultural Economics at the University of New England went on to pursue a career in agribusiness. Five years on and several locations later, Emma moved to Geneva, Switzerland with her husband for his job. During her five years as an expatriate in Geneva, Emma completed a Master of Human Nutrition through Deakin University and had two children. Following the birth of her first child, the seed was planted with Emma to write a children’s book around healthy eating and the origin of the food we eat.
These days Emma puts her energy into raising her two young children, Oliver and Sofia, with her husband Josh, whilst continuing to create and promote awareness of food education in all of our children.
