My little boy is really picky. He won't eat any green veggies. I have tried everything. Took away his cartoons, took away his snacks, even made him go to bed early, he still wouldn't budge. I feel bad, but I want him to be healthy and eat his veggies. Suggestions Please!
For starters: eat them yourself. And for your partner to eat them as well. Also to have nothing but good items available to snack on. If you are fixing dinner set a plate of carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, and cut up peppers out with dip. Tell him if he is hungry he can munch on those. Make salsa with some veggies thrown in and take out the chips. Also puree some veggies and put them into things like spaghetti sauce, grilled cheese, his favorite foods. He doesn't have to know that what is in stuff he is eating and likes is also healthy. You can even make brownies and put in spinach and other hidden veggies. It is easy, deceptive, and you don't have to argue. Also in the mean time keep the plates of fresh veggies out in the open to munch on and role model how much you and your spouse just LOVE eating your vegetables. Oh...Jessica Seinfeld's book is also great.
