Grow Gardens With Your Kids to Encourage Eating More Vegetables

Getting your kids to eat vegetables is one of those classically difficult tasks, but tending a garden with them can get them excited about eating what you grow. Mind Body Green suggests starting a simple garden with the youngins so they can start to develop a better relationship with food.

In our world, you can get everything harvested, cleaned and prepared. This creates a disconnect between us and our food, and kids experience this disconnect too. Growing a garden with them, even if it’s just simple vegetables, lets them see where their food comes from, and it’s possible they can come to appreciate it a lot more. You can even let them pick what you grow to get them more involved.
