I don’t exactly have a green thumb, but I do enjoy getting to work in the garden, no matter how small it may be. I’ve also noticed that my kids will eat more veggies if they actually had a part in growing them.

Beets may not be their favorite things to eat, but when you get to pull them from the ground, it’s worth a taste or two.

Peas, beans, carrots, and tomatoes too.

If you want your kiddos to eat their veggies, have them grow their own.

This year, I actually let the kids  choose what they wanted to plant, they chose…

a hamburger garden.

It may sound strange, but we are growing everything you need to make a delicious burger- including the fries.

Potatoes, tomatoes, lettuce, cucumbers, and even the dill to make our own pickles.

The kids had a great time planting, and Stella even  decided to label her plants.

The kids also planted some basil for  tomato salad;  Stella cannot get enough tomato basil salad, and of course my kids love apple sauce on the side of their burgers.  Actually, they eat apple sauce on the side of pretty much anything.

They even ate apple sauce while working outside, thanks to mess free apple sauce pouches from Tree Top.

I like to make sure we have plenty of snacks on hand, especially on weekends.  Our schedules on weekends are a bit out of the ordinary when it comes to eating, and apple sauce is one of my kids’ favorites;  always has been. The apple sauce pouches make it easy to eat on the go, even if you are only going to the yard.

During the Tree Top Raising Good Apples Campaign,  every time you purchase Tree Top applesauce pouches from March 31 – May 31, they will donate $1.00 to KidsGardening.org – an organization committed to building school and community gardens for children  and families everywhere.

Tree Top Apple sauce pouches are made with only 100% fruit, and  because Tree Top is a grower-owned co-op, they truly care about the communities they live and work in. For more than 50 years, Tree Top has been a trusted brand dedicated to delivering top-quality products and premium ingredients such as juices, smoothies and sauces.

Tree Top Apple Sauce Pouches make it easy to snack on the go; no mess (well, other than the dirt from the gardening) and no spoon needed. Plus, pouches are just fun!
