"Yes, this will be a messy process, but hey, it's just dirt, right?" Ariela says. "And what better way to encourage little ones to eat their veggies than to let them grab a seed, press it into the dirt, and watch it transform into a plant they can eat? My son loves pointing to the seeds that have begun to sprout and shouting, 'We are going to eat them!' He's also the one who is in charge of watering the plants and keeping an eye out for new seedlings."
