Grocery Store Fun

Name that Produce
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!
