Make Meatless Monday a family affair
When kids help make 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 will be to healthy choices.
