    Getting kids recognizing all of the work that goes into making dinner from shopping to eating.

    My boys loved running around the grocery store with their scavenger lists! It was so cute! I wish we had thought to take a picture. My 7 year old loved doing the word searches and picking out recipes for us to try too. Wish this series could go on forever! Thanks for all your hard work putting it together.

    Well…to tell the truth, I have been doing this challenge with my husband (57). He’s supported me very well over the last 3+ years I’ve been plant-strong. However, he was more of a flexitarian, eating food that weren’t quite so healthy at times. We have had a ball reading the pages together on Sundays and working on the goals all week. He’s feeling better and not having too much trouble sticking with it. Thanks for letting the old kids join in.

    My daughter loves the shopping activities at our local produce market, and coloring is always a hit. Thanks!

    My kids enjoyed the scavenger hunts each week at Whole Foods and learned a lot of new grains and tried them as well. My oldest son loved the word search and it has turned him into a healthier eater. For some reason he wouldn’t listen to me but he listened to the lessons in the packet each week! LOL

    The create-a-face plates are a great idea!

    My oldest (14 month old) loved coloring the pictures and eating all of the yummy food…She even tried to feed some of it to her baby (4 month old) sister. We enjoyed doing it as a family…Each week we made a point to try the new recipes and buy new fruits or vegetables at the grocery store. We tried rapini for the first time, and I think our daughter was the one who liked it the most.

    The shopping challenge was definitely a big hit in our house with our three kids (6,5,3)!

    I love that now my son will give the whys for not eating sugar and why he wants to eat healthy. He also says, and he’s only in first grade!, that he’s going to help all his friends eat healthier, too, so they can grow big and strong like Rip 🙂 He loves our local farmer’s market and goes every week to pick up our CSA basket of veggies. He can’t wait to see what’s in the basket for the week. Kholrabi chips? Sure!

    My 4 year old boy Phoenix said his favorite thing of all was helping Cole find his kale in the maze. We love doing these as a family. Thank you so much for making them!

    Michelle learned that eating healthy isn’t a punishment. She loved the food. 🙂

    Love making a face with kale hair, grape eyes, walnut nose, red pepper mouth- omg! I think I found my new passion! Will definitely be sharing these ideas via photo on my facebook page!
    Also love the coloring idea! Totally not buying Elmo coloring books anymore- instead we can learn and get excited about all the beautiful colors for fruits and vegs! Brilliant!

    My kids are still young (1 and 2) so aside from eating what they normally eat we enjoyed working on the names of all the foods in the scavanger hunt.

    Naturally the coloring was a big hit, but I enjoyed logging the foods we ate each day as part of the whole food challenge.

    My daughter loved everything about this series! She especially loved the shopping challenge and the word search. We were able to use this as part of our schooling. Thank you for putting this series together!

    This is such a great idea! My almost 3 year old started preschool last week and part of their focus is healthy eating and sleeping. Some of their focus points are on dairy and animal products, so these fun activities gave me the support I needed to stick to a mostly vegan diet. I am sticking to my guns.

    My daughter most enjoyed the muffin tin activity. She was more adventurous than I thought and I was challenged to be more creative in terms of non- food rewards.

    My daughter loves the series. It gives her a lot to do.We have incorporated it into our homeschool science. She is a competitive diver for Longhorn Aquqtics at UT and being plant strong has given her more sustained energy for her workouts. Thank you for helping us to have fun tools to educate our kids.

    We loved the recipes such as the Mac n chz. I think my kids were more open since it was “just for kids!

    My child loved the word searches and coloring pages. I loved all the information, especially the parent pages, if you don’t mind I think I will share it with a children’s run club that I do in the spring.

    Wow- this looks like a great series! Going to try it out with my 7 yr old. I need to counteract some of the “4 food groups” lessons he gets at school!
