Great article Elizabeth. Our school metrics, collected in our hands-on gardening program, have shown that 96% of kids will eat a vegetable if they’ve grown it. Even if you don’t have a garden you can use a pot on a balcony or window sill with sun exposure. While you are growing the vegetable you can talk about it, buy it in the grocery store, and try recipes together. Eating habits do indeed start young so we start with Preschoolers. Good luck to all the parents of picky eaters out there!
