Local Farms Create Little Foodies








Going to a local farm to pick produce is a fantastic way to get your kids interested in fresh produce. Children are more likely to eat food that they have a hand in making or prepping, so picking food will help your kids get excited to try ingredients that may be unfamiliar. Talk about how fruits and veggies grow, whether on trees or in the ground. Do they taste sweet? Crunchy? Crispy? Juicy? How do they feel? Smooth? Waxy? Squishy? What color are they? Encourage your little ones to use all their senses to get the full experience. Oh and take lots of pics and have a blast!
