Struggling to get the children to eat their veggies? One great way to get them interested is to get them helping out in the garden. My 3-year-old loves putting on a pair of gloves, digging in the dirt, planting seeds, checking on her plants and watering them. It’s no guarantee they’ll eat what you grow, but they’re more likely to show interest and taste the results in your family cooking, plus they will learn where produce comes from; the perfect intro to healthy eating
The countdown to Spring has begun, and so has the countdown to enter the Young Gardener of the Year Awards, with entries closing on August 27th!
Young gardeners from all across the country can enter the T&G Passion For Growing Award, which any primary school can enter. So if your child goes to a school that’s been getting busy in the garden, talk to their teacher about getting an entry in!
