A worthy download for tots

Convincing a toddler to eat vegetables is kinda like trying to convince a new mom to wear a bikini. That’s why we’ve downloaded Percival Perkins: The Particular and Picky Eater. Created by Oak Park organization Fresh from the Farm, the made-for-toddlers e-book tells the story of how a fussy eater goes from downing potato chips for lunch to learning to love fresh veggies. It's a complement to the organization’s farm-to-school program, which teaches children about sustainable, local foods and healthy eating. Don't miss the handy guide in the back, offering suggested questions for dinnertime conversations and a listing of local farmers' markets.
