Why did we choose to have fun with sprouts? 

For two reasons:

#1 – Healthy Eating – Sprouts are called miracle food! They are one of the most nutritious food to eat. They contain fiber, protein, minerals, vitamins & enzymes. Fiber helps you digest better,  protein makes you strong, and minerals & vitamins adds more energy in you!

Of course, it our family’s favorite snack! We enjoy eating them raw but absolutely love eating them in the form of salad.

#2 – Science Experiment – Sprouting is a very good science experiment for kids because it helps them to learn the process of germinating seeds.
