Regrowing Vegetables

For the parents out there trying to entertain your kids at home during this pandemic – here’s a way to learn about food with your kids!

Follow these steps to grow vegetables from kitchen scraps. In one week, expect to have a full new green onion, enough lettuce for a sandwich and for the celery to be ready to be planted in soil. Decide together how you’re going to eat your harvest. For something simple, try making ants on a log (spread peanut butter on celery and add raisins on top). If you’re looking for more inspiration, the Yumlee app allows you to search for recipes by ingredient and filter results based on prep time and nutrition.

Remember to keep food safety in mind, which includes safety around knives and supervising kids when using ovens or stovetops.
