Do you have a picky eater at home? Do you keep buying and preparing the same kinds of vegetables and fruits because you don’t want to waste food that your family won’t eat? Well, you are not alone. Lots of families face these challenges, even when there is so much fresh produce to enjoy all around us. But there are solutions.
Children who are active in helping to select and prepare vegetables or in growing their own vegetables, are more likely to eat more vegetables and a wider variety of vegetables.
So how do you get kids more involved? Share the adventure! Try new vegetables and fruits together.
