is there any way that I can get my children to eat more fruits and veggies? any suggestions would be great. We have tried putting cheese sauce over their veggies but I need some other ideas also

We've always had the rule "You don't have to like it, you have to eat it" What we would do is if they didn't like a certain fruit or veggie they just didn't get as much(we called it the no thank you serving) but still had to eat what was given. As time went by all my boys ended up liking every fruit or veggie we had. We aso try to let the kids be involved with making meals, for some reason that seemed to make a difference with my boys. Kind of like it was thier idea to make the choosen veggie. Good luck!

Serve them more often, use them as snacks. We always have carrot sticks, celery sticks, cut broccoli and cauliflower in the fridge. My boys have those or fruit when they first get home from school. They are ready and easily accessible.
