  • My dd, 2.5, loves some veggies. Cooked, cubed carrots are her favorite. She chooses those over candy.
    My ds, 7, hates all vegetables except for fried ones like french fries or onion rings :(

  • My little girl likes brocoli and baby carrots. My son doesn't like them so I have to hide the veggies in the food and give him vitamins

  • DD6 eats many kinds of veggies, she loves tomatoes, broccoli, corn on the cob, red peppers, peas, green beans, carrots.... DS4 likes none of them, sigh. Making some zucchini muffins tomorrow for that reason, lol.

  • My son loves peas, green beans, and carrots. That's about it as far as vegetables, but I'm glad he truly seems to enjoy those three. He is 3.5.

  • She likes most veggies. Her favorite right now is raw cauliflower. Given the choice of fries or broccoli at a restaurant, she'll take broccoli every time.

  • yep. All 5 of my kids LOVE vegetables. They usually ask for seconds. My 5yo has been known to ask just for vegetables for lunch.
    I've never given them any option except to eat their vegetables and they will now eat almost any kind I serve.

  • My 2 yo and 11 yo LOVE veggies - even things like brussel sprouts and cauliflower (yuck!). My 9 yo doesn't like any veggies (although she does love fruit), and my 1 yo is a little picky about which veggies she'll eat.
