Produce Scavenger Hunt | Printable Farmer’s Market Activity

Making smart snack choices is easy when your home is full of the right options but with the holidays in full swing, it’s easy to get comfortable in the alternative. Blue Cross Blue Shield of Arizona’s Nourishing Arizona Homegrown Healthy campaign is helping our community learn about the benefits of eating fresh produce and providing the opportunity for every family to take home items from farmer’s markets like we did at the Sugar Swap. We recently visited the Sugar Swap to exchange our Halloween candy for Homegrown Healthy Bucks. Little sister wasn’t sure why she was handing over her giant bag of candy but listened intently as we learned age appropriate facts about the differences between sugars found in treats and the healthy sugars found in fruits and vegetables.

Sugar accounts for much of the empty calories consumed by teenagers and has very serious negative health consequences if not consumed responsibly. The Homegrown Healthy Bucks provided to us in exchange for our candy bag at the Sugar Swap gave us the opportunity to explore the farmer’s market and have a little fun with a produce scavenger hunt.

First up on our produce scavenger hunt was finding something sweet. Little sister touched and smelled everything until she decided a big ripe peach was the sweetest. By this time she had long forgotten about the candy we had exchanged for the produce vouchers.

We explored the farmer’s market for a couple of hours and learned about many new fruits and vegetables we otherwise would not have seen in the grocery store.

She was very excited when I reminded her we could bring home all the fruits and veggies she wanted with our Homegrown Healthy Bucks.

We came home with a nice selection of fruits and vegetable and had some fun in the kitchen making rainbow veggies. Is there really anything better than singing a song about the rainbow and preparing fresh vegetables for dinner?

We also use our produce scavenger hunt to make everyday visits to the supermarket an adventure too.

  3. What a brilliant idea. If you make picking out fruits and veggies fun kids are more likely to want to try something new. Plus, it makes for less complaints at the grocery store or Farmer’s Market about how bored they are.
