I try to stay as healthy as possible with my soup recipes as well as with everything I eat. Of course, I am all about moderation, but for the most part I focus on vegetable and bean-based soup recipes. This has allowed me to grow significantly through my cooking with a focus on local and organic produce as well as seasonal ingredients. However, many children across the US do not have access to fresh vegetables, where only 2% of American children are eating enough fruits and veggies.
During an event yesterday that I covered for Momtrends, I learned more about the significance of gardening and how it can impact the way our children eat. Through an interesting campaign called the ”Urban Gardens Across America,” Whole Kids Foundation, PACT, and Indiegogo teamed up to create a forum where donors can fund gardening projects across the U.S. The beauty of this system allows kids to learn about the significance of gardening while also providing a sustainable resource for food as well as a focus on healthy eating. For more about this exciting collaboration, check out my post on Momtrends.
