Bring your kids (or nephews/nieces/grandkids) with you to the market, farmstand, or to pick up a CSA box. They’ll make memories and learn along the way.

Prep your #paveggies with the kids! There’s nothing like a little muddy water and veggie scrubber to get them excited about chomping on a carrot.

Try keeping a cooler in the car stocked with raw #paveggies ready for snacking and other healthy munchies. This will help eliminate fast food and encourage development of healthy habits.

Create a vegetable celebration! When we turn healthy meals into festive events, kids will develop a positive association and excitement for #paveggies.

Serve a sneaky homemade soup with stock made from a combination of #paveggies like parsnips, turnips, carrots, cauliflower, onion, and celery. By straining the stock, kids won’t see the vegetables but they’ll still be getting the nutrients!

During the coldest days of winter, your family will surely thank you when you open up your homemade canned tomato sauce and take your blanched zucchini out of the freezer, adding that hint of zesty summer to any meal.
