Are you ready to spell your way through the grocery store? We're heading straight to the produce section so we hope you remember to dot your chives and cross your tomatillos! 

From sweet potatoes to watermelon, from shallots to spinach, this quiz is sure to make your belly grumble. But before we prepare these fresh ingredients for eating, we want to see if you can spell them!

Can you use it in a sentence?

My parsnips look like white carrots, but they turn pink when I cook them with beets.

Parsnips. P A R S N I P S. Parsnips.

Very good! Now if only we could get our children to eat them!

We don't know what it is, but the more difficult vegetables are to spell, the less our children want to eat them! Think you can get your child to eat radicchio or kohlrabi? Well, try adding a lot of dressing or sauce, and maybe they'll change their minds! 

No matter what, though, produce, when prepared and eaten in its most simple form, is healthy for our bodies and should be eaten often. So let's see how well you can spell these amazing fruits and veggies! It's time to dig in and see if your brain can keep up with your appetite! Good luck and bon appetit!
