Anyone have any good ways to guarantee a child will eat their veggies? My kids are 3, 5 and 9 and when it comes to a healthy meal they would rather starve than eat it. Any ideas to get them to eat? I am all out.

I would not give them a choice. In my house you have to try everything on your plate and eat all of one thing. So if we have brussle sprouts, steak and rice they have to try everything. If they don't they don't get dessert or a snack later until they do try. Remember kids won't starve themselves so if they are hungry they will eat. You have to stay strong until this becomes habit. Also, try having a trying plate. When I am making something new I will put together a plate for everyone to try the food. I have gotten my kids to eat things like fish and eggplant this way. You could also find different ways to get veggies into their diet, like adding them to pasta sauce or meat loaf. Good Luck!
