Talking about vegetables

Baby Vege & Hummus-5
I've found that a great way to teach my kids about vegetables is to take them vegetable shopping. We will sometimes simply talk about the shapes and colours of different vegetables in the vege shop or supermarket.

I have been teaching them about the five groups of different coloured vegetables; orange, green, red, purple and white/brown.

Baby vegetables are so cute, and great for little hands to hold. For afternoon snacks, I have been serving baby vegetables with hummus (as above), but they are just as great with cottage cheese, and,  if there are a few adults snacking as well, I often serve them with babaganoush.
