Wendie's Wonderful U-Pick Weekend

Wendie Schneider

Wendie Schneider AKA “The Pantry Doctor” is a registered dietitian and Greenville Foodie.

We all love fresh food, and the best way to connect with your family and get healthy is to get kids involved in the process by visiting local U-pick farms. Getting the whole family involved in food gathering and preparation is important for children to learn where food comes from. They are more likely to try healthy foods if they are involved in the process. This weekend I sought out local U-pick farms in the Greenville area.
