Note from Dr. H:
Let them play with their food! The beans are long and a bit hard to pick up with a fork, so let the kids have a little fun with their fingers while they're snacking.
"We eat a lot of vegetables at our house and I like them. Potatoes, baby carrots, cucumbers, corn, green peppers and green beans are my favorties." Carlon O. age 14
