Rosy cheeks. Dirty hands. And muddy footprints in the hallway.
When the frost has melted away, there's nothing better than getting the little ones outdoors for fresh air and a bit of gardening. This springtime, we want to get loads of kids in Ireland outside planting and harvesting their own gardens. From March until the end of April, every box of our kids smoothies or fruit tubes will come with its very own pack of easy to grow seeds. There are six different varieties to collect including carrots, tomatoes, cress, basil, violets and sunflowers. The best part is that all grow into something you can eat - delicious.
Whether your garden is big, small or not much at all, our seeds can be grown in containers of all shapes and sizes. From empty smoothie cartons, to welly boots and window boxes – everyone can take part. Getting kids sowing and growing is a great way for them to learn where their fruit and veg actually comes from and it turns out they’re more likely to eat stuff they’ve grown themselves too - so it’s another clever way to get them eating their greens.
Every pack has handy growing instructions, cut out and keep plant markers and loads of cool plant facts. Keep an eye on www.innocentdrinks.ie and follow us on twitter @innocentIreland for information on our exciting schools competition which we'll be launching this week.
