Every parent wants their children to have what's best for them; to eat fresh fruit and vegetables as part of a healthy nourishing diet. If only it were that simple! But that's the challenge taken on by Jason Ralph-Smith, founder of Little Growers. He believes that getting youngsters to grow tasty produce is an exciting and educational way of involving them in what they eat. Children love to create something of their own, plant and water it and watch it grow. There's always great enthusiasm for the tallest sunflower contest or simply growing cress in an eggshell. But do kids know that toasted sunflower seeds make a nutritious and tasty snack or that cress goes wells in an egg sandwich? Little Growers aims to harness youngsters' eagerness and natural curiosity, encouraging them to grow and taste a variety of produce. By enabling children to get involved in growing, Little Growers also encourages them to learn about their environment, sustainability and healthy eating.
