Although our Handstand Kids love veggies, its no secret that parents are always looking for ways to encourage this particular food group into the diets of little ones. However, the Culinary Vegetable Institute in Milan, Ohio, has come up with a program titled “Veggie U” that has already helped many young children discover how exciting and tasty vegetables are!
Veggie U’s mission is to promote the well-being of children through a healthy lifestyle, with a focus on making wise food choices. Kids learn how food grows and participate in activities that help them develop a familiarity with healthy food. The program was created by educators, physicians and nutritionists, visit www.veggieu.org for more information and to see if a program is available near you!
In order to ensure that your kids get a full serving of fruits as well as veggies, whip up one of the delicious Handstand Kids Smoothies as a delicious snack!
