E13 The One with the Opera

Aside from your mouth, what else do you eat with?

Consumer behaviour expert Paul talks to the Super Naturals about subliminal messaging and the psychology of shopping. This clip can become a springboard for lessons around persuasive language, a media literacy class around how to be more savvy to marketing spin. or Jonathan and Joseph meet Vera the Vegetable Clairvoyant, who teaches them the value of building up your nutrient reserves like Lego pieces (a particularly good prompt for a conversation around functional eating). Paul West describes his ideal plate, with plenty of different colours and textures.
