Teaching About Food

While cooking with your kids teach them about the foods you are using. Teaching and helping your child understand where and how fruits, vegetables and other products we eat are grown, can help peak their interest in eating healthy. It doesn't have to be a long informative lesson, just telling them such things as potatoes are grown underground, walnuts grow on trees, or carrots are good for your eyes, can be interesting for them to learn.

Try using these fact sheets for lessons within themselves. Choose a fruit or vegetable you'd like to talk about. Then read the food fact sheet, try cooking with it and do an activity (plant a seed, visit a market or make a craft out of it).
