that my 3 year old knows that food comes from animals and farms and not the grocery store. And that green beans are veggies. Some kids only know french fries as veggies. She can tell what all kinds of fruits and veggies are in their raw form. Do you teach your kids where food comes from?

Oh yeah. I garden and we butcher our own beef. It's still cute when we go into the store and dd says 'look mom! All the fruits and vegetables we need.'

 That's great that your 3 year old knows all that!

My dd knows where food comes from.  I was a little nervous at first telling her that meat comes from animals.  I was afraid she wouldn't eat it.  But she's a big meat eater and it didn't phase her at all. 

She's 8 now.  I just asked her if french fries were vegetables and she looked at me like I was crazy.  lol.  I guess technically they are since they are potatoes but I've never thought of them as a veggie.

My kids love learning about where their food comes from. I think its really important that they do.

That's great!  I don't go over it all the time...but she can recognize different foods.

 My kids know where meat comes from, they prefer veggies raw in general.
