Food Nature Lab is pleased to conclude our video series “Vegetable ABC”. There were only 10 vegetables in our original Play&Grow program and we have now covered the entire alphabet! We’re very proud of this project and have worked very hard on it. We do believe that kids should enjoy eating their vegetables more and hope you have fun showing these recipes and activities to your little ones.
