One of my favourite parts of Little People Preschool is snack time! I love that the teachers encourage a variety of different fruits and vegetables. My daughter comes home from school and I always ask her: “what did you have for snack today?” I love hearing that she had coconut, star fruit, green beans, cauliflower, fennel, purple sweet potato or edamame beans. These are foods she may not eat at home but in the presence of her friends and teachers suddenly finds these foods exciting and delicious. Occasionally I hear about how she made sushi and rolled up the seaweed herself, she cooked kale chips in the oven with her friends or she boiled up vegetables in a soup. Food is such an integral part of our lives and is the fuel we survive on. What better way to teach our children about food than with their friends and teachers?
