Vegetables Names in Chinese for kids

Vegetables are an important part of daily meals. Vegetables provide nutrition and vitamins to help kids become healthier and smarter every day. Even so, many young children hate to eat them and always take vegetables off their plates. So how can you get your child to eat vegetables every day without forcing them?

First, as a parent, you can try to get your kids familiar with eating vegetables by including at least one leafy green or yellow vegetable each day.  Spinach, broccoli, winter squash, greens, and carrots have vitamin A. Serving more salad or even teaching your child how to make salad are also great options for your kids to get used to vegetables.

Also, try creating  vegetable-themed activities for your child.. For example, your kids can learn to speak Chinese by using flashcards or playing guessing games. The colorfulness of the vegetables will ignite curiosity in your child. They will want to know more about these delicious plants and will feel excited to play with you.

You can teach your kids how to say vegetables in Chinese and help them relate it to their surroundings. For example, “This is a carrot. Carrots are orange. Do you know any other food that is orange?” “Lettuce is green, do you see anything else that is green?”

To help you get started, Galaxy Kids will provide you with 30 popular types of vegetables in Chinese for kids. Get creative with making games for your kids!
