Gardening for Life
Today’s video is about how to get children eat better food, vegetables and fruit primarily.
Fortunately, there are many schools now which have programs or at least projects which introduce the simple idea of having fruit and vegetable gardens on the school yard, or at least, near the school. Taking that essential first step further, is the idea of have kitchens close by, so that children learn not only to grow the food and to harvest it, but also to prepare and cook the food and to ultimately eat their own, healthy food.
For those of us with backyards, this is simple. For apartment dwellers, having school programs (or even girl guide/boy scout – programs) to this end, is a Godsent.
“If you want to see a proud child’s face,
feature their totally-self-created
carrot salad for lunch!”
