I recently came across this nifty little chart that shows when fruits and vegetables are in season. I enjoy buying them when they are in season for a couple of reasons:
1. Better taste
(produce from the family garden was always the best)
2. Higher in vitamins and nutrients
(produce isn’t traveling the long distances after being picked prematurely)
(I live on a budget to!)
Although this chart isn’t all inclusive of every fruit and vegetable, I will be using this as my guide to start incorporating more in season produce with my kids (I’ll hide some of them by pureeing). Anyone want to join me? As I look over January/February, my kids will eat one of the vegetables listed…carrots. It’s a start!
