Do you always serve veggies with dinner?

I was wondering if I am the only mom who makes veggies for dinner with whatever main dish there is?

  • Usually yes. Unless we are having some type of pasta, then I fix salads. I never fix fresh veg, though. I keep plenty of varieties in the freezer. I hate to cook, and fresh would just spoil in my house before it would be cooked!

  • Yes, we always have some sort of veg. I like well rounded meals and to me this means we have a meat, starch and veg for each dinner.

  • No, you're not the only one. I always try to make the effort to make a veggie with dinner, but not always. It depends on whether or not the maindish has already cooked before I've thought about cooking the veggies:)

  • yes... at least offering it will make them have better choices, they eat most of them too

  • always...without veggies, our body tends to not work as properly & we're more likely to get sick & get illnesses later in life too. vegetables help keep our body in check better....

  • I always serve at least one veggie dish, sometimes two, with dinner. If dinner is a casserole that includes veggies, I always serve a salad with it.

  • Always! Sometimes two different vegetable dishes, since my daughter mostly only eats veggies (yes, I know how unusual that is!)
