Name that Produce

ages 3-6


Activity Detail

Need an idea to make going to the grocery store more fun for kids? Want to encourage your child to be more excited about fruits and veggies? Make a game out of the produce section! As you are shopping, see how many different kinds of produce your child can name. Try teaching him or her a new item each time you shop and see if your child can remember that item next time. Ask your child to find and name produce of a certain color or of a certain shape. Or to find things that are sweet, sour, etc. Occasionally buy a fruit or vegetable that your child has never tried, take it home, and discuss how it looks, smells, feels, and tastes. Maybe you will discover some things that your child really likes!

This is a great way to learn more about fruits and veggies that you wouldn't normally buy.

This activity, which encourages enthusiasm about eating fruits and veggies, is certainly worth a try, especially if your child is a picky eater. It also turns grocery shopping into a fun game which is great if you have a child who gets bored and restless at the store

A great tip for helping on grocery trips, but not much of an "activity".

Another idea is to play Grocery Bingo. You can make simple cards with pictures (or words, depending on age of child) on the card and have them mark the boxes off as the 'find' them in the grocery store. Turns mundane shopping into an exciting game! (Don't forget the prize at the end!)
