The following is a guest post from Jenna of Food with Kid Appeal :
At long last! A tool to help busy parents teach kids how vegetables nourish their brain for optimal learning. Whether you homeschool or just want some enrichment activities over the summer, a Veggication is for everybody.
Veggication  is a nutrition education program that introduces children to vegetables by kid-friendly experiences and activities.
Reading, writing and arithmetic? Check. Vegetables down the hatch? Check. Kids with nourished brains? Check. Three birds, one stone.
Persuasive Literacy: Create a poster that will help your family, or homeschool community love broccoli. Use pictures, words and phrases that will excite and inform others.
Measurement: Give students a basket filled with vegetables. Practice measuring vegetables using a non-standard unit of measurement. Compare results with other students, and of different vegetable specimens. As other vegetables are introduced in the year, ask students to predict which vegetables will have more units of measurement.
Social Studies (economics): Visit a Farmer’s Market. Understand which produce is grown in your community and season. Have students prepare questions to ask to the famers/vendors to learn which vegetables cost the most/least to grow, which ones sell at the highest price or quantity at the market.
Veggication has a number of different curriculum packages available: homeschool, “at home”  package and “after school/camp”  package for daycares/ schools, all designed to help kids fall in love with veggies.
You can purchase the Veggication package for 15% less when you use the coupon code LAM15 in the notes field on the shopping cart check-out.
This week four LifeasMOM readers have a chance to win a Veggication homeschool or “at home”  package.
