My First Organics-Helping Kids Eat Their Veggies!

Zulily is a site that has discounts on baby/toddler/kid clothes, toys, maternity and a host of other items.  I found many of my little people's Christmas gifts on sale from zulily.  That is always good, right?  I just noticed that they had a deal on my first organics.  Here is a link for zulily so you can register and see/buy this deal.

Below is the information from the zulily website about the my first organics deal.  I think 1 of 3 would LOVE this.  Going to tell Santa!!!  FYI deal ends Dec. 6th at 6am. 

For $15, receive $30 for organic seed starting kits

About this deal

Got a kid who's not crazy about eating their veggies? This eco-friendly event will help them live a more green lifestyle—they'll eat more veggies and learn about sustainability.

Here's the trick: teach them about nutrition early and get them involved with My First Organics seed starting kits by Surf City Growers. Planting and harvesting their own has been proven to encourage kids to eat lots more vegetables.

Winter is just about the perfect time of year to get veggies started on the windowsill so you'll have healthy, sturdy starts come spring. They'll be ready to be planted directly into the ground or a container, biodegradable organic pot and all.

What can I get for $30?

You can get everything kids need to grow cherry tomatoes, snap peas, bush beans and more. The My First Organics seed starting kits start at $16.95. Additional packets of seeds are available for only $1.50. Kits designed for classrooms and homeschooling make great gifts for teachers and homeschooling families.

My First Organics kits offer easy-to-grow seeds that are specifically chosen to grow well in containers, so you don't need an outdoor garden. Here's what comes in each kit:

  • Organic seeds
  • Organic biodegradable pots
  • Organic plant food
  • Soil approved for organic use
  • A reusable and recyclable mini greenhouse made out of FDA-certified, food-grade plastic
  • Instructions

You can also pick up How a Garden Saves the Earth, a picture book written by the makers of My First Organics. Just right for preschoolers through third graders, it tells the story of a girl who gardens and a boy who buys his produce at the supermarket. The story illustrates why growing organic food is good for kids' bodies and the planet.

Their joy is helping people connect with their own physical heath and the well-being of the planet.
