Getting kids interested in fruits and vegetables
Here is a fun way to get kids interested (and perhaps even liking!) more foods that are good for them.
Go to the store on your own, or if you are feeling ambitious (or realisitic) take the kids with you, and each pick out a fruit or vegetable you have not tried before. Go home and taste test them together. Even if it turns out you have not discovered anything new to love, at least you have given it a try and it is introduced to the kids in a fun way.
Our family bought a coconut from Macey's (on sale this week for $.99) and that is what we are trying out. The kids are enjoying shaking the coconut to hear the milk slosh around and we are all excited to figure out how we are going to get it open.
