This past weekend I attended Healthy Kids Day at the Norwich YMCA where I have also done after-school programming with the children. I had one girl come up to me that had previously done a series with me at the YMCA after-school site and said that her family made the minestrone soup that she sampled in after-school for dinner twice so far. This recipe was a sampling I had brought for them during one of the lessons and they all really enjoyed all of the different vegetables that I added into it. She said that her mom made it too spicy for her the first time but the second time she tamed it down more!! It was a great way to introduce new recipes. We find that if children enjoy the recipes themselves they are more likely to take them home to share with their families...this is a perfect example of that!
