Fresh produce at the grocery store.

Directions:
Directions:
Take your child(ren) to the grocery store - or Farmer's Market - and spend time in the fresh produce. Talk about what vegetables are in season and why. Look at all of the different fruits and vegetables and allow the child to choose 1 fruit and/or one vegetable. Take the chosen produce home and let the child help prepare it - washing, slicing, cooking (whatever is age appropriate). Look up recipes on the internet if you don't know how to prepare or serve! Make a production of serving the special treat. You'll be surprised at what the child will choose and taste when they help!

Personal Notes:
One summer, Clint and Vanessa got to choose something different in the produce department every time we went to the grocery store. We tried kale, leeks, coconuts, mangoes, pomegranites, different peppers and squashes! I haven't asked them if they remember choosing different items - but it made grocery shopping more fun for the summer!
