First Steps to the Library highlights the skills young children need to be ready for school and helps caregivers understand how they can grow these skills.
Growing Healthy Habits
School Readiness Skill: "Children develop healthy eating habits."
How can caregivers support healthy eating habits?
- Share family meals together.
- Offer a variety of fruits and vegetables at each meal.
- Involve your little one in choosing food, making meals and even growing vegetables to eat.
ICYMI: Get growing at Richland Library! You can " check out" seeds from the Seed Library. The seeds are free and organized by flowers, herbs and vegetables. Every season has some vegetables to grow and you can grow year-round in South Carolina.
BONUS: Gardening tools can be borrowed from Richland Library's Library of Things.
Find information about healthy eating and more from our friends at Richland First Steps.
