7 Fun Facts about Plants to Share with Your Family

March 7th is Plant Power Day, a day to celebrate the incredible benefits of plants and their positive impact on our health and the environment.

As a plant-based kids nutrition company, we believe in the power of plants for our children's health and well-being. That's why we use organic, plant-based ingredients in all of our products, from our formulas to our kids snacks. But plants are not only important for their nutritional value, they are full of surprises!

Here are 7 fun facts about plants to share with your family that will leave you in awe!


  1. Plants can produce electricity: Some plants, like the Venus flytrap, can produce electrical signals that help them catch insects. This electrical activity is similar to the signals in our own nervous system.

  2. Plants can live for a very long time: Some plants can live for hundreds or even thousands of years. The oldest living plant on record is a Great Basin bristlecone pine tree that is over 5,000 years old!

  3. Some plants can survive without soil: While most plants need soil to grow, some plants can survive without it. Air plants, for example, absorb nutrients and moisture from the air around them, while aquatic plants absorb nutrients from the water.

  4. Plants can heal: Many plants have medicinal properties that have been used for centuries. For example, aloe vera is known for its ability to soothe burns and cuts, and chamomile can help calm anxiety and promote relaxation.

  5. Plants can communicate: Plants have a complex system of chemical signals that they use to communicate with each other. They can share nutrients, warn each other of danger, and even signal for help when under attack.

  6. The fastest growing plant in the world is bamboo, which can grow up to 91 cm per day!

  7. Eating a plant-based diet can lower your risk of chronic diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, and certain types of cancer. This is because plant-based diets tend to be higher in fibre, vitamins, and minerals, and lower in saturated fat and cholesterol.

To celebrate Plant Power Day, we encourage families to learn more about the incredible powers of plants and incorporate more plant-based foods into their diets. This can be as simple as adding more fruits and vegetables to meals, or trying out new plant-based recipes.

For the month of March, we’ll also be offering up to 30% off our range!

Small changes can make a big difference, and we are proud to be a part of a larger growing movement towards plant-based eating and sustainability to help our future generations.
