Early Childhood Food Tastings in Jackson, Mississippi

A great big OrganWise shout out to Virden and Jones Early Childhood Development Centers in Jackson, Mississippi! As a part of the Thriving Communities, Thriving Children project, funded by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, these two early childhood development centers have been conducting healthy vegetable food tastings with students using The OrganWise Guys materials. Both centers received a Healthy Incentive Project mini-grant to expand the current OWG programming happening in their centers to include these vegetable taste tests with children.

A big thank you to Ms. Vodie Taylor and Ms. Jewel Reed for teaching children and teachers at Virden and Jones about the importance of adding vegetables to their diets. Thanks to food tastings like you see in the pictures below, young children in Jackson are learning about and trying new foods!

Gardening Lessons Learned

Well, it’s time to admit it, I wasn’t practicing what I preached. Having my kids eat vegetables, sure! Trading out screen time for family physical activity, absolutely! Starting a home garden, no way!!!

I have a black thumb and I’m not joking about this. I’m horrible when it comes to plants. Did you know they need water?!? Apparently, I need a living thing to scream/bark/cluck (chickens) at me to remind me of their needs. Obviously, plants don’t do this, so in my house, they die.

Kids Teaching Kids

Hi there,

Today was Take Your Daughter to Work Day. Some of my classmates went with their parents to their jobs, and many teachers brought their own kids to work. My teacher brought her three-year-old daughter, Josie, today. It was so much fun! During recess, several of us played with Josie on the swings and jungle gym. She was so smart and well behaved. While I was practicing counting with her, she made me think of something. We learn everything in stages. For Josie, counting to ten is quite the accomplishment. It was for all of us at one time as well! But now, we are learning our multiplication tables and long division, and there are times when it seems like the hardest thing in the world. But, then again, so was counting to ten. Watching Josie reminded me that I need to take a deep breath and remember that I’m not going to always understand everything perfectly the first time I learn it. It takes practice and time, just like when I was a little kid learning to count. Oh, make sure and get your coloring sheet and activity sheet for today!
