Lisa and I spent a LOT of time before we got up and running planning out a super-detailed menu with a ton of healthy foods for our students to eat. One of our goals is to introduce our students to a variety of new flavors and nutritious foods, but as a licensed family home we aren't allowed to require children to taste the food. Instead, we've been encouraging them to be adventurous eaters! Here's some advice that we have found helpful in that process. (You can find more Nibbles for Health newsletters here!) Check back in a future blog for some of our most successful healthy recipes for building adventurous eaters!
We want to be a resource for families around the community, not just families who currently attend Ashland Children's Garden, so we have created Food For Thought, our community outreach blog. In this blog, we will post articles that we have found helpful or inspiring, as well as book reviews, recipes, and other information related to education and children!
