My son’s school, Sharon Elementary, has started something great! I am not sure if all the CMS schools are doing it, but hopefully it will catch on. A veggie challenge!! If the kids are “caught” eating veggies at lunch they get announced on the PA and a big deal is made of it. What a fun and positive way to get kid’s excited and motivated about eating veggies!
Why not doing something similar at your house? Find a fun way to reward and make a big deal about your child doing a good job with his veggies. The more normal and fun we make it, the easier the battle will become.
Let us know if your child’s school is doing the challenge. If not, why not start it at your school???
