A friend of ours at a recent soccer game had a bag of sunflower seeds. She offered some to my kids who readily accepted the offer.
I had not realized that I had never purchased sunflower seeds still in the shell! This became apparent when my 11 year old began eating the whole seed! Husk and all. He even thought they tasted OK. I couldn’t wait to get to the store to teach my kids how to eat sunflower seeds!
Now I take them to every soccer game. What a great little treat. My friendKristins2 year old was enthralled with the seeds for the entire hour. He kept coming over to me, asking for a specific number of seeds.
“I need one seed.” and then he would walk to his grandpa sitting under a tree, and his grandpa would teach him how to open it. Then he would come back for more. It was so cute!
Plus shelled seeds are cheap! I got a bag for 1.99. They’ve lasted me 5 soccer games!
