Kids with an organic backyard or patio garden have an outdoor pantry and can make delicious meals from raw food that has life and flavor. For the longer lasting items, kids can buy organic products to avoid harmful chemical residues and to support the farmers who are taking care of the soil and the environment. Stocking the pantry with all organic ingredients, kid can make healthy cooking a joy, using extra virgin olive oil, balsamic vinegar, whole wheat pastry flour, coconut oil, old fashioned rolled oats, whole grain pasta and noodles, quinoa, brown rice, dried beans, peas, and lentils, baking powder, baking soda, arrowroot starch, maple syrup, dried spices, sea salt, canned tomatoes, dried fruits, nuts, and seeds. Kids can discover the artificial ingredients, preservatives, and additives in packaged food by comparing the food nutrition labels at the store. In the garden, kids can enjoy the beauty, smell, and feel of the fresh organic fruits and vegetables. A backyard garden is the outdoor pantry, where food grown to perfect ripeness delivers the highest nutrition, beauty, and flavor.
