Come On, Even A Kindergartener Can Grow Wheatgrass

That's right, I just read that a kindergarten class is growing, juicing, and drinking wheatgrass juice. There is a belief out there that growing wheatgrass is a daunting and complex task, but it is actually quite simple. I am pretty excited to hear this kind of stuff, since all I can remember eating at kindergarten was sloppy joes, pizza, and french fries--not exactly healthy stuff. In junior high school, our health & nutrition teacher actually taught us how to make fried donuts, ice cream sundaes, and spam sandwiches!!!

With a little direction from a local juice bar owner, 5 year olds are actually learning how to grow and juice wheatgrass. It is very important for kids to get a little lesson in eating healthy, since they are bombarded from all sides with junk food. I have been drinking wheatgrass juice pretty much every day for over 2 years now, and I haven't been to the doctor for that entire time. I also feel lucky to have been brought up by health-food crazy parents, and have grown into a healthy eater. If you haven't tried growing your own wheatgrass, give it a go! The worst thing that can happen is you screw up and try again!
