Children who grow their own vegetables are five times more likely to eat them, according to a 2015 study.
Whether it’s at school or at home, gardening can benefit their health and well-being in many ways.
Consider involving your children in planning your garden, and garden alongside them when it’s time to plant.
Let them select veggies, herbs, and flowers they would like to grow.
Get them involved early in the process to increase their investment and help them learn.
Planning a garden can help them practice math skills and expose them to the science of plants.
Gardening connects us with Mother Nature, influences environmental stewardship, and is an ongoing lesson in a healthy lifestyle and good nutrition. Plus, children who spend time in green settings have improved creativity, imagination, cognitive function, and intellect.
In the remaining winter days, plan your garden and if you have children at home invite them to join you.
You will all reap the benefits this summer and onward.
