  • put a cheese sauce on it if your cooking it or let them eat it raw and dip it in ranch dressing. my son has always enjoyed broccoli

  • By adding carrots or some other veg that my kids will actually eat. Or by hiding it in something. My kids don't like it, they've tried it, but I think it's a textural thing for them rather than the flavour.

  • I think it is a like or dislike thing. I steamed them and told my kids they were baby trees and they were all for it. When they were little if I told them it had vitamins and was good for them, they ate it. Then they got old............

  • we add it to dishes. chicken alfredo and stir fry are our favorites. we eat broccoli a lot but almost never by itself. the kids don't even bat an eye at it when it's in with a bunch of other stuff! it's good with ranch dressing, too.
