Fall is the traditional harvest season. It is a great time to introduce young children to the path that many fruits and vegetables follow in going from a farmer's field or orchard to a child's table at home. In this section, children will learn about the autumn fruits and vegetables they eat and the workers who help to provide the variety of foods from which to choose. Many skills are emphasized - from how fruits and vegetables are grown to dealing with finicky vegetables eaters and teaching good table manners.
