It’s entirely coincidental that my wife and I started an herb garden going yesterday, and now we’re watching for the seeds to germinate. But that’s a little different from sprouting, which Emma and her mom were doing, starting with lentils. Emma’s mom was motivated by the prospects of healthier eating for her family. For Emma, it was an adventure that would end with her eating the tasty lentil sprouts.
It’s a marvelous story for kids not only for the entertainment value but for the simple step-by-step instructions that Emma and her mom used in their sprouting, which required common items that everyone has in their kitchen, such as a strainer. Kids will enjoy eating the sprouts that they grew themselves, and they’ll benefit from the nutritional value of the sprouts.
