Vegetables are colourful, tasty and they come in a myriad of tastes and textures! They are also a great source of vitamins and nutrients, whether cooked or raw, which makes them an excellent meal choice for children and adults to stay strong and healthy. However, it's not always easy to get the little ones to enjoy their veggies. It's a fact that most children prefer sweeter tastes, and when they eat vegetables they might find them too bland. The trick is making vegetables appealing and fun!

Learning the names of vegetables can represent a great opportunity to introduce the little one to new food. Knowing the different types 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 both have fun and develop a liking for garden produce. This way you'll make sure they become eager to eat vegetables, and they'll leave behind the fear of trying new, healthy food.
