When kids help make healthy food, they are more likely to try it. Show kids how to:

❁ wash produce under cool running water.

❁ measure and mix ingredients.

❁ slice or chop produce on a cutting board by cutting down and away from their fingers and body

Store Well Waste Less Leeks

■ Leeks are best used soon after harvest. Refrigerate in a plastic bag for up to two weeks.

■ Wash just before use. Leeks need to be washed well because soil is pulled up around the stem as they grow. There is almost always grit caught between the layers.
