Attention Foodies! 5 Kid-Friendly Field Trips

Where to? A Local Farm or Garden

No, produce doesn’t grow in the grow-cery store (couldn’t resist). And you’d be surprised by how many kids don’t know this fact! Visiting a nearby farm or community garden is a great way for kids to learn where food really comes from. They will discover that plants start from just a tiny seed, and how in the right conditions, they flourish into wholesome and delicious fare. They’ll see how sunlight, soil, water and even worms all contribute to the growth of good-for-you foods. Not to mention, it could very well set them on the path to a lifetime of healthy eating. Not bad for a day’s work.

Assignment: Find three plants you have never seen before or pick up some seeds and start a garden of your own.
