• Preparing Vegetables

    Posted by Asia Torrejas on 6/15/2022

    Vegetables need to be offered daily. Children should consume between 1 - 4 cups of vegetables a day (age depending). Be mindful that not every vegetable has all the needed vitamins and minerals that support health, growth, and digestion. Because of this, it is important to offer a variety of options and perhaps different ways of preparing/presenting the vegetables. It is also important to encourage your children to try something new weekly or monthly. Let them be part of the process, take them to a farmers market or store and let them pick a vegetable. Of course, there will be vegetables your children don't care about. Don't let that discourage you, as you may find a new favorite.
