    • Make Meatless Monday a family affair

    May 16

    Getting your whole family to do Meatless Monday is a great thing, but sometimes kids aren’t eager to eat more veggies or try new foods. When kids help make meals, they’re proud and excited to eat the food they’ve helped make. Cooking together also provides a time to discuss the impact that food choices have on our bodies and the environment. The more educated kids are about food the more open they’ll be to healthy, sustainable food choices. The family that cooks together, eats together.
