GET KIDS TO EAT HEALTHY WITH A DIY FARMERS' MARKET

Building a Farmers' Market in your home is so fun and even though you are playing with pretend food, you will be connecting and teaching your children about REAL FOOD. When you are a busy parent the easiest thing to do is run to your local grocery store to pick up dinner. The last thing you are thinking about is your fruit covered in pesticides and all of the processed food you just put in your cart. Let's face it... most of us are not going to eat healthy every single day. Still, we do the best that we can as parents. There's no need to get too down on yourself when you let the kiddos have the occasional Happy Meal or a small bowl of Cheetos, but teaching them good eating habits will give them a healthy balance. Keeping the treats in moderation and educating about what's healthy and what's not can help you avoid obesity and health problems that stem from a bad diet.

OTHER GREAT REASONS TO TEACH KIDS ABOUT FARMERS MARKETS
△The families that farm for a living need our support! Teach children to support their community.
△Kids can help make a difference and be an important part of their town or city.
△It takes the kids away from their electronics and tv.
△It's family time! Every kid needs time doing activities together as a family.
△Learn new words like eggplant and avocado! Perfect setting for gaining new language skills.
