Getting 2 Year Olds to Eat Veggies

My favorite way?

Get him involved in the growing process.¬† My 2 year old helped me pot this tomato plant, helps me water it everyday, loves to “give it a little hair cut” (prune), and was so curious about the whole process from flower to fruit.

He was very excited when the first tomato ripened and couldn’t wait to pick it from our urban garden:

What a beaut!

He then cut some basil from our herb patch. He helped me cut the tomato, drizzle olive oil, sprinkle sea salt and add the basil.

It was the perfect afternoon snack!
