Make Meatless Monday a family affair
Getting your whole family to join you for Meatless Monday is a wonderful thing, but sometimes kids aren’t eager to eat more vegetables or try with new foods. When kids pitch in making meals, they’re proud of their accomplishment and excited to eat the food they’ve helped make. Cooking together also provides a natural time for discussing 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, food choices.
