One of my favorite things to do on the weekends, is to go to the farmers' market as a family. We have been taking our son since he was born. Here he is at 8 months, helping me pick out some fruit.
Now he is able to walk and grab his own fruit and vegetables. There is definitely something to be said, about including your children in the preparation of their food. He gets so excited, about eating the food that he has picked out at the farmers market. It has made getting him to eat fruits and vegetables so easy:)
This is why I was so excited when I saw this new kit by Molly Smith. It is called Let's Go to the Farmers' Market.
The kit includes a really cute reusable bag (the strawberry folds out to a bag), 20 activities to do at the farmers' market, a book that covers everything that you need to know about farmers' markets, and a shopping list.
I can't wait to grab one of these, so my son continues to love the farmers' market and eating healthy!!
Does your family go to the farmers' market? Do you think it encourages your kids to eat healthy?
