Grow Your Own Pizza
We discovered a wonderful way to get our three year old grandson to eat his veggies, combine several in a homemade soup that he gets to name and help prepare. Its worked wonders at the dinner table, no more struggling to get him to eat his green veggies. The success of this veggie eating venture has opened the door to other healthy food projects that we can enjoy with our grandchildren. Planting a salsa or pizza garden is a great way to get kids involved in growing their own foods and instill a life long love of gardening. A pizza garden is fun and easy for kids and adults alike, and generally has tomatoes, onions, parsley, basil, oregano, and peppers in it. There are more plants that could be included in a pizza garden, but these six are the easiest for kids to grow. If you want to make it really fun, plant your pizza garden in the “round”, with a “slice” for each different type of plant, but don’t worry if you don’t have a plot of ground, pots work just as well. Growing a pizza garden is a great way to teach kids where food really comes from, and I’m sure that they’ll agree the best tasting pizza they ever had was the one they “grew” themselves.
