On a rainy Wednesday night, Twin Parks Parents participated in a workshop about helping children develop a positive outlook on food. Eric Luongo and Jenna Tomiello, both experienced farmers and educators, presented “Picky Eaters or Budding Taste Buds?” Parents learned about foods that are important for healthy growth, portion sizes, and that it takes some children 15 to 20 times of tasting before they like a particular food. The important act is that they try!
Parents made and ate Green Spaghetti with pesto, Cabbage Cole Slaw, and Green Goddess dip. Take a look at this great list of resources provided by Eric and Jenna: List of Resources Picky Eaters.
