Our first activity for you and your family to enjoy is sweet and simple. With tasty fruits and vegetable in peak season, it is the perfect time for you and your family to take a visit to a local farm or farmers market to collect seasonal fruits and vegetables. No matter the age of your children, it is nearly impossible to resist the delightful taste of a freshly picked berry.
Although most of the food at the farm/market will be familiar, we encourage you to inspire your child/children to choose some fruits and vegies that they think look good. This will encourage them to potentially try some new food(s), expanding their horizons while entertaining them.
If you have the time and think your child/children will be interested, we suggest having them choose a recipe in which they can use the seasonal food that they choose at the market.
Check out our next article, Cooking With Kids, to find some helpful tips and healthy recipes to put to use.
Local Farmers markets: If you live in the local Greater Toronto Hamilton Area then you’re in luck, as there are a great deal of farmers markets, and local farms for you to visit.
Check out your cities website, or do a quick google search, to find a local farm/market and time that suits your schedule.
