Fruits and Vegetables

At the after-school site "The Place" I brought a prepared recipe of BBQ lentils for the children to sample. Children tend to get easily turned off when they hear 'lentils,' unwilling to try them, so it was described as homemade baked beans. As they were all enjoying their samples one little boy named Alex said,"'I have never had homemade baked beans like this. I have only had them with bacon and these are really good!" He asked for a second sample because he loved them so much! Beans can sometimes be a hard sell, especially for kids, so this was truly a huge success story!
