Mother Goose had seen the future when she said, "To market, to market, to buy a plum bun. Home again, home again, market is done." With more and more parents joining the organic movement, visits to the local farmers market have become a weekend ritual in many households. Barely a week goes by that we don't see at least one Hollywood mama walking around LA's various markets.
Help your lil one learn more about the importance of fresh fruits and veggies with The Playful Chef's Farmer's Market Set ($15). The set comes with a reusable cotton shopping bag, a produce scrubber, a cotton towel and a booklet with information about seasonality, where fruits and veggies are grown and how to prepare them for cooking. Designed to encourage children of all ages to become more involved in their food decisions, the kit just might help you get a few green foods into their stomachs.
