I Eat Vegetables
by Hannah Tofts

Lovely simple picture book aimed at very young children.

For each vegetable there is a large full colour photo of the whole vegetable and the name of the plant, with a flap page which folds out to show 2-3 more photos of parts of the plant and the words for those.

For example broccoli has a photo of a whole head, then a sliced head and florets, and the words “broccoli”, “head”, “stalk” and “florets”.

So a very simple book with few words, but a nice introduction to the language of parts of foods.




Foods featured are cabbage, carrot, onion, corn, tomato, broccoli, pepper, potato.

This is part of a series called Things I Eat and there is also a book called I eat Fruit.

Available from most booksellers.

The example in the picture below are all 'Red' - strawberries, cherries, apples, raspberries and tomatoes, but there are sheets for other colour groups ...

Children can compare the output from different squares and they can take full part in the planning. Older children can do lots of maths comparisons between crops and spac...

Building a Plastic Bottle Tower If you're short on space but want to grow some veggies or herbs, this is a great way to fit a load of growing room in vertically by recycling old soda bottles. The beauty of it is that the watering system on the top makes it very easy to take care of, and therefore great for growing with children, if they miss a water or two it is less likely to be a disaster. This video from Willem Van Cotthem,which is essentially a slideshow, shows you...

Thanksgiving Turkey Peppers and Hummus

Thanksgiving Turkey Peppers and Hummus A lot of recipes over Thanksgiving are rich and unhealthy but this is a great snack for children to pile into which will not fill them with sugar and salt. We found it on the Super Healthy Kids site and it has brilliant detailed photo instructions for how to cut the peppers to get the right shape. You can of course add other crudités on the side to dip in too, but the pepper strips make lovely feathers to serve. They u...
