Ugly fruit, good lesson

Have you noticed a bin of “ugly fruit” or “imperfect vegetables” at the grocery store?

In an attempt to have more transparency with consumers, an increasing number of grocers are getting the courage to sell odd-shaped carrots and irregular berries.

Industry advisors see the trend as a natural result of the farm-to-table movement.

But as an educator, I believe it offers a great opportunity to trigger a conversation with your kids…and not only about veggies.
