Let children be more willing to eat fruits and vegetables. Parents know that nine out of ten children don’t like vegetables. Moreover, there is a pick and choose. Studies have shown that when children grow their own vegetables, they will be more willing to eat them. we found a 2007 study in the Journal of the American Dietetic Association. Probability of preschool children participating in fruit and vegetable planting to eat 5 servings of fruit and vegetable per day. It is more than twice as high as preschool children who do not participate in fruit and vegetable cultivation. Because children will learn more about plants in the process of participating in planting. Then, I was no longer so afraid of these plants.
Growing vegetables can teach children about the environment. By planting plants by hand, children will learn the importance of soil and water to life. Moreover, they learned where their food came from. After all, understand that these plants do not grow on the shelf. Through such green courses, children will understand the importance of protecting the environment. These valuable hands-on experiences provide children with a rich life experience.
