Farmers Market Fun for Kids

Category : Tips for Health

cute kids preparing a mealEncourage Healthier Eating Habits

Shopping at the local farmers market is a great opportunity to experience new foods and encourage healthier eating habits in children.  When at the market, have children select one new fruit or vegetable they have never had before and then try it in a new recipe at home.  Discuss where the items were grown and talk to the farmers about their produce.  Nothing encourages healthy eating better than great tasting fresh foods.  Let an adventure begin by exploring the variety of fresh foods and  trying samples when available.
