What we feed our kids matters.

Summertime Tastes Great!

summer-farmers-marketsResearch shows that children need to try a new food 10-12 times before they decide they like it. Other findings show that kids are more likely to try foods they harvest and/or prepare themselves.

Give your children a jump-start on tasting new fruits and vegetables with a delicious, fun trip to a U-pick farm harvesting (and tasting!) fruits & veggies; or visit a farmer’s market and let your child choose a new fruit or vegetable for the whole family to try.

For a list of farmers markets and farms that offer U-pick see the Whatcom Food & Farm Finder.
