This one has been on my list for the last year and after a busy summer season with the Pilates and Wellness Studio I have finally found some down time to bang it out and get it done. So I am excited to announce the next book in the Farm Foodie Fitness “Homegrown” series. This is the kids edition!!! Perfect for any age that wants or loves to cook and/or garden!
This book teaches kids to start, maintain, grow a garden, and then harvest what they’ve grown, come back in to the kitchen develop a recipe, prepare, cook and enjoy all their hard work! The book teaches kids to be hands on and aware of where their food comes from, how it’s grown and taken care of, the work that goes into growing food and the importance of eating well. It also teaches them to be able to come into the kitchen and learn how to take those ingredients, prepare and safely cook their harvest, and turn it into a nutritious and healthy meal.
Learning to garden and cook not only teaches a life long skill, it also teaches science, math and measuring, understanding cook and preparation times, the life cycle of a living thing, and how to take care, nurture, and gain responsibility for some thing. As well as learning how to make healthier choices, expand their palates, and become more open-minded to new things and nature.
