    11.) Make Meatless Monday a family affair

    Getting your whole family to join you for Meatless Monday is great, but sometimes kids aren’t eager to eat more vegetables or experiment 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. The more educated kids are about food the more open they’ll be to healthy, sustainable food choices.
