Open Farm Day coming up!
▪ Farm Adventure Day ▪ Discount Days for Small Groups! ▪ Half Day Camp this Columbus Day! ▪ Get Your Children to Eat More Veggies! ▪ Support Y
Remember the ease of having your infant eat almost every vegetable you gave them. Many of those veggie smells were less than delightful, but it was a great feeling knowing that they were getting the nutrition they needed.
But time went on, and cookies and cupcakes became their first choice. Veggies became an option. How did it get to this point?
We've heard that if you don't like something, try it again later. Our taste buds change as time passes, and we may find ourselves surprised that the olives we previously passed on has become a favorite topping. Okay, well maybe we all haven't gotten to that point. But you could.
Taste can be acquired. In fact, studies show that after 15 days of trying a food, a child will develop a change in taste. Begin with a small piece and offer it everyday. Yes, they may resist at first, but at the end they should be used to it.
Up for the challenge?
Let's do it together! Pick a vegetable for your child and join us on Facebook as we will run a 15 day challenge.
Last Thursday, Alegre Farm participated in Harbins Elementary School Career Day. It was wonderful to teach the children what farmers do and let them meet our goat and hen!
Harbins has great programs as part of their STEAM program. We hope to share more with you next week!
Green and Healthy Schools
This Thursday Lovin Elementary is hosting a local initiative that connects teachers to programs they can incorporate at their schools and their curriculum that results in a greener and healthier natural world.
Alegre Farm will be there to meet teachers and inform them more of our field trip opportunities.
