Getting kids to eat their veggies can be a difficult task,
however with a positive outlook, I promise that it CAN be done!
The trick is to change their perception of vegetables from “Yuck but Mom says I have to”, to “Wow we always have fun when the veggies are out!”
It helps to make every “green experience” they have be all about fun and games. Always keep up a positive attitude about it, respect that there are certain tastes they will need to grow into, and of course the age-old, “You will grow big and strong” truth never hurts 😀
Lastly, don’t forget the most important piece to raising veggie lovin/toleratin kids – take the pressure off yourself by removing any expectations! It’s OK if your kids don’t like kale right out of the gate, the important thing is that you are introducing them to it!
Lead by example and you can never go wrong! Keep up the good work Moms and Dads XO
