The official date of Columbus Day is on October 12th. When Christopher Columbus first came to the Americas, Native Americans were eating foods no others had seen: pumpkins, squash, corn, tomatoes, potatoes. Imagine that—Italy without tomatoes or the Irish without potatoes. Thai food without hot chile peppers! But it was true. Native American foods soon traveled around the world, and became popular. Your children can look up Columbus in the library, and write down all the foods that were native to America, but soon traveled all around the world.
