Veg = food = yum!

My kids love vegetables…and I have no idea why.
Maybe it’s because…
1) We eat a lot of veg – raw and cooked.
2) We shop for a lot of veg…
3) We grow veg and the kids help out with caring and harvesting.
Prime example was today when I harvested my baby bok choy and HK choy sum. Noah helped with putting the harvested veg in a big container. He got to touch, molest, pull and basically get to know the veg on a sensory level. Later, dinner was punctuated every so often with “WAHHHHH” and “Mum mum” from Noah – they finished every single bite of veg!
So yes, a rather “cheap” and educational activity like growing vegetables may also help with getting kids to eat!
