This Month’s Nutrition Topic:
Raise Adventurous Eaters – Get the kids involved!
Kids are more likely to try new foods if they help with food selection and preparation! Infants and very young kids may start by watching or can be given a piece of produce to play with, while slightly older kids can help wash, pour, or grab items from the fridge or cabinet. See the document to the left or the video below for more ideas.
