Emerson’s mom sent us this photo after he surprised her when was up at 7 a.m. on a Saturday chopping his POP veggies for vegetable soup!
Mom Quote: “For dinner, my daughter is having carrots from the farmers market that she picked out and purchased with her POP cash!!! Carrots and ranch!! She’s so proud.”
Mom Quote: “...that was the first time my son had tried a radish, so when he saw me eating that night on my salad he at least knew what it was!"
Mom Quote: “Kelly loved your kids taste testing booth", and told us Kelly asked her parents if she could start a garden, "...we bought radishes at the farmers market and we planted radish seeds."
POP Kids' Club is a free club for kids held nationwide. POP stands for the Power of Produce, and encourages kids to try new foods, to eat healthy, and to have fun at the market.
