Engaging Kids

Engaging Kids

Kids who engage regularly with veg through veg-themed activities, such as arts and crafts, sensory experiences, growing and cooking are shown to be more likely to eat the veg they engage with. Encouraging kids to engage and play with veg is the handy first step to them developing a good relationship with veg and life-long healthy eating.

Sensory

Sensory

Keep one extra roasted pepper and spend some time exploring it with your child. What does it look like? What does it remind them of? What about when you cut it in half? What does it look like now? How does it feel? Is it different to a fresh, raw pepper? Find more ideas, videos and some simple sensory education session ideas to get you started here.

Ask your child to come up with a funny name or story for the dip. Let them tell you about it as they share the dip with you for an after-school snack!
