The Great Big Vegetable Challenge (GBVC) has made it to the end of the alphabet and deserves to celebrate.
Charlotte Hume has (with the help of daughter Alex) taken her veggie-phobic son, Freddie, on a two year journey through the alphabet of vegetables. It has been a most amazing trip - inspirational, interesting and great fun.
We have been introduced to unheard of veg, like theDaikon, and shown how to use unusual leaves like dandelions. But with every new vegetable, we were kept firmly on the right track by Freddie. If the vegetable did not taste nice, and look good, it did not score.
The GBVC was a true challenge, and became more challenging - and even competitive - in the drive to make each vegetable acceptable to Freddie (or high scoring!).
The GBVC has made history - not only because Freddie now eats vegetables, (and actually likes some of them), but because it has made vegetables interesting, shown us how to persuade our young onesto develop an interest in vegetables, and given families confidence to have a go.
To celebrate, the GBVC are having a Vegetable Face Competition. The rules are simple - use vegetables to create a face, photograph it, email it toGBVCwith your first name and where in the world you come from…Say if you are an adult or child as there is a prize for each!
The prize is a copy of The Great Big Veg Challenge book, and that would be something to celebrate!
