We are on V week in preschool with my little G and kicked it off with V is for Veggies. My boys are pretty good at eating vegetables, the particularly like bell peppers, carrots & peas. It makes me pretty happy that they do eat them, I swear when I was a kid I never ate veggies
We started it off with a big letter V that he put veggie stickers on. I found some clipart on Google images and he didn’t know the beets, egg plants & radishes (I do not eat any of those!).
Then used the same stickers as with the capital V page, along with some fruit stickers, and we deciphered between fruits & veggies and put them in their separate bowls. It’s kinda hard explaining the difference between fruits and vegetables in 4 year old terms, so I stuck with fruit takes like a treat and veggies need ranch .
Then we did some taste testing. He has eaten all of the vegetables we tested, but it was fun for him to decide it it tasted good or not good . He also wrote out the names of each vegetable, great practice with his letters. (find this spreadsheet here).
It’s always a goal of mine to teach my kids more about a healthy lifestyle. Other preschool activities we’ve done in relation to ‘healthy living’ –> F is for Fruit, N is for Nutrition & O is for Oatmeal.
