Gardening for Healthy Kids
March 30, 2010
Healthy Kids Challenge wants to encourage you to plant a garden with your kids! We know that when kids grow their own fruits and veggies they are much more likely to eat them.
Try these simple steps to get started:
- Determine a small location and prepare the soil. If land is limited, try container gardening.
- Offer guidance for some sure-success plants like radishes, lettuce, spinach, but let your kids have fun picking seed choices.
- Let your kids do the watering and weed picking.
- Relax your standards. The point is to have fun and encourage your kids to eat healthy produce.
