Our kids have been involved in our vege garden even before they could walk. I think understanding where our food comes from really helps. In the kitchen, the younger ones help peel veges or simply put the chopped veges into the saucepan. The older kids get to help cut up food, test whether its cooked in the saucepan, and try following recipes to prepare meals. They all help with their own lunch boxes for school, and have limited access to junk food. They understand that junk food and take away food are occasional treats, and for special occasions.
