Teaching young children to eat healthy can be quite a task. Several studies mention that eating patterns develop in the early childhood, so it's really important to teach them how to eat properly from an early age by introducing a series of healthy food choices that they can enjoy.
Vegetables, for example, are a great source of vitamins and nutrients, whether they're cooked or not, which makes them the ideal choice to create a balanced diet. But it's not always easy to get the little ones to enjoy eating their vegetables, so parents must find a way to teach about this topic in order to make eating vegetables a pleasant experience for children of all ages.
The fact is that learning the names of vegetables does not only helps kids widen their vocabularies, but it is also a great opportunity to reinforce healthy eating habits, specially by using games and activities where they can bothhave fun and develop a liking for garden produce. This way you'll make sure they become eager to eat vegetables, and to be more likely to try new healthy food.
Here you'll find a list of vegetables names and also some games and activities to help you with this important task.
