Eat More Fruits and Veggies
I'm very proud to admit that getting my kids to eat more vegetables and fruits have never been a problem! We are an organic family and enjoy many veggies and fruits and even grow a garden in the summer. Our three year old will gladly choose broccoli over french fries and we are so proud of that!
Thanks to the help of Disney getting kids to eat more fruits and veggies just got a lot easier!!!!
Many kids don’t get enough fruits and vegetables in their diet, but parents can turn the tide. Instill a penchant for produce in your kids with the help of this lineup of products featuring Disney characters.
