Hey baby, eat your (baby) greens

This week’s craft over at Canadian Family Magazine isn’t really a craft, it’s a fun activity… one that happens to result in your kids (maybe, hopefully, GOD WILLING) eating broccoli. You heard me right. BROCCOLI.

You think I’m kidding? Check it out.

are they ready to eat at the size in your picture? Do you pull them up by the roots or snip off and let them grow more/again? I’ve never grown sprouts, but the kids like eating mint straight off the plant so maybe they’d eat these.

Neat idea and a nice way to spring into spring. But the poor broccoli, gets such a bum rap :( but interestingly broccoli is vegetable queen in our house, kids love love love it, even the 10 month old.

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our two daughters Emma (18) and Sarah (16). I am the managing editor of our community newspaper, the Kitchissippi Times. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger, and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999... which makes me either a total dinosaur or a veteran, I'm not sure which! The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
