Get Kids Talking About Eating Veggies

by SPARK


A simple way to teach kids nutrition is to provide a fact, and then ask questions about how that fact relates to them. It gets kids thinking and discussing real-life situations. Try the ideas below to start healthy conversations about vegetables!

  1. Veggies offer vitamins, minerals and fiber for good health.
    • Can you name a veggie you ate yesterday?
    • Which ones are your favorites? Least favorites?
  2. To look and feel good, you need to eat at least 2 and 1/2 cups of veggies every day.
    • How many times a day do you eat veggies?
    • Do you think you eat 2 and 1/2 cups daily?
    • If not, how could you add more veggies in your day? (Give examples such as: A) snack on raw veggies B) eat a salad at lunch C) eat 2 different veggies at dinner.)
