I was amazed to find that even my 21 month old was able to effectively get dirt off the mushrooms with the brush, then set the mushroom on my cutting board for me and let his brother have a turn. Color me impressed!
Washing fruits and vegetables is a no-brainer task to let kids do - but I particularly liked brussel sprouts because there were so many individual, sturdy items to wash.
I wish I could tell you they then ate both foods... But that didn't happen. It was more likely than if they hadn't been involved!
