For the young

Whether they’re toddlers or teens, today’s youngsters are tomorrow’s gourmets, so we have a section entirely devoted to them!

Because educating and refining the taste of young people is a big part of the Cité’s mission and will continue to play a vital role in the years to come.

Little gourmets

Is your child between 6 and 12 years old?

Here you’ll find fun and educational content to help them explore the world of gastronomy, the link between food and the environment and the delights of a great meal.

Each element is perfectly adapted to different age groups, with easier subjects for the youngest (between 6 and 8 years old) and more in-depth matters to chew over for older children (9 to 12).  

In fact, the complexities of food and gastronomy are explained in ways to suit every taste!
