PRODUCT STORY
It's never too early to start growing a child's appreciation of fresh-picked, locally grown fruits and veggies, and this kit will turn visits to the farmers' market with your little sprout into fun adventures. Before you leave home, the illustrated book teaches children about farming, farmers' markets and nutritious foods. Use the cheery shopping list pad to help children make their list of yummy foods to try. There's also a set of 20 activity cards, of games to play and things to look for while you"re there, and a child-sized, reusable grocery bag that folds up into a polka-dot strawberry. You'll be carrying home healthy habits and some precious memories. Made in China.

Getting kids to eat their veggies isn't always easy, but teaching them about nutrition in a fun way and getting them involved in the shopping process can help. Could this kit help you cultivate a future foodie?

I'd love it *more* if it were made in the USA and if the bag was made of cotton, since we're taking it to a farmer's market

I agree with Katrina. I'd love to see this made in the USA and made of cotton. It would capture the whole concept of farmers markets and "farm to table" better.

Make it in the USA and I'd buy it. Great idea but not supporting inhumane Chinese labor.

why does it matter about where it is made? China, Usa, Taiwan. But anyway, I dont believe any child would be interested.

Just looks kind of stupid. I don't mean to be rude, but I just don't see a kid really getting into this.

Why not just take them to a farmers' market instead?

Children are curious by nature and will only lose interest if those who teach them have no enthusiasm for the knowledge they wish to impart. This is a great way to create healthy habits in children.

I agree -the point of a farmers' market is to support locally grown items. Seems odd this is made overseas...

Most families interested in having their children actively involved with meals and what they eat would take them with them to the market. The kids don't care about flash cards, just get them involved!

Made in China, will not buy it. Stop supporting their economy!! Support ours, and buy and sell items made in America.

I like the concept and the deal ($15 for a reusable bag, a book, activity cards, and a few shopping lists, not that bad). I can see kids using this over and over and getting excited about trips to the market by using this kit. Will buy!

Great concept but would not buy due to being made in China. I think that some kids would love the concept and helping out with the purchase of the foods. My son has been shopping for ingredients to make dinners since he was about 8 yeara old. He is 36 now and a great cook. He still loves finding fresh ingredients locally grown to make his favorite receipes. Check into making it in the USA and I think you woukld have quite a few customers. This would be a great present for my grandchildren as they shop with thier dad and are being taught about fresh ingredients. Find a US company to make this
