I've been doing some thinking, spurred by this interview. What's the secret to getting your kids to eat vegetables?
Do my kids love vegetables? I'm sure the word love would be stretch. Do they eat their vegetables? Yessiree!!
First of all, I don't think there is a secret - otherwise someone would be a multi-billionaire and it wouldn't be so hard. I think it takes work and consistency.
I think you need to be an example. I make myself a salad almost every day with tons of veggies. When I make a sandwich, I load on the veggies. I always offer it to them, even though they usually so no thanks. At least I offered.
They have their favorites and that is what I try to pick out. G. loves asparagus and broccoli and beets. M. loves cucumbers and carrots. I'm not sure I. really loves a vegetable, but she will eat peas, salad, and peppers.
