Broccoli is my son's favorite vegetable.
This is a good thing because he doesn't like that many vegetables!
Therefore, it is a truly good thing that the one vegetable he loves is one of the healthiest vegetables around.
Broccoli is high in folate, vitamin C, is a good source of calcium and fiber. Plus, as a vegetable, broccoli is super high in phytonutrients–those things that scientists are learning are especially good for us!
This is what inspired me to create this cute little activity pack geared towards your youngest kids Pre-k to elementary.
