Grocery Shopping with Kids – Fruits and Fun!
Healthy eating grows healthy minds and bodies. Pam wanted her kids to eat healthy foods. She tried to make healthy eating fun. The fun began with their weekly visit to the grocery store.
Pam and her kids started their shopping in the fruit aisle. Pam gave her kids a healthy choice. She asked them if they wanted apples or grapes. Apples have Vitamins C and A. They are also a good source of fiber. Grapes have Vitamin C.
Pam’s son chose apples. Pam asked, “Green or red?”
“Red!” he said. Pam asked him to fill a bag with five red apples.
Pam’s daughter wanted grapes. Pam again asked, “Green or red?”
“Green!” she said.
With bags of fruit in hand, the children searched for the scale. They had fun guessing how much their fruit would weigh. The weight of the fruit determined how much Pam would have to pay for it.
Pam’s children liked to eat food they had helped choose. Pam and her kids walked to the vegetable aisle next. Pam said, “I’m searching for a green vegetable. Guess what it is!”
