" My 5 year old son has always been an extremely fussy eater, so I thought First hand Experiences’ Grow Make Eat will be a perfect weekend activity for him. He enjoyed grating vegetables to make salads with his friends, and I could not believe my eyes when he actually had a bite of beetroot! He also enjoyed getting his hands dirty digging soil and planting seeds. It was an amazingly successful day and I now have high hopes that by the end of summer he might be eating vegetables. Thank you Justin and his dedicated team. Kai is very much looking forward to his next activities!
