Farmer’s Market Fieldtrips

The best way to shape your child’s eating habits and help them to want to eat well is to include them in the process of buying and preparing healthy food.  The best place to do this is at your local farmer’s market!  It’s fun to do with your family when you travel too- you really get to “see” the community and feel connected. The children are excited to see the beautiful array of fruits and vegetables and it helps them feel involved in the process.  Most importantly, the local food will have a lot more flavor and be better for your whole family’s health!

Almost every city and town has one- you just might have to do a little research.  Here is a great database:

Another bonus: It’s also a great place to find other Integrative Moms at home or while away!
