How do you get your kids to eat more vegetables?

Posted by   + Show Post
Getting your little one to eat more veggies can be a tough job but it doesn't have to be. We asked 50 CafeMom members to take  the One Giant Pledge to get their family to eat more vegetables and gave them a free coupon from Green Giant to get them started.With Green Giant, vegetables are picked at the peak of perfection and frozen or canned fast to preserve the simple goodness nature intended!


Tell us about your family. How do you get your kids to eat more vegetables?

I'm going to look up new recipes on allrecipes.com for some dinner ideas. One trick that I do is shred carrots in almost every dish that I make. Also when we run out of pickles, I put raw baby carrots in the pickle jar and let them soak. My kids will gobble them up! lol

My kids are 19, 12, & 8 and they love dipping their foods. If they can dip it, they will eat it so I cut up veggies and let them choose their salad dressing of choice and put the dressing in a small serving cup.

Each of my kids likes at least one kind of veggie.  My son likes carrots, my older daughter likes corn and (idk how it happened but I'm glad it did) my youngest likes peas.  She ate 5 servings of peas with her lunch the other day.  Hey, I wasn't going to stop her!  LOL.  I'm big on veggies myself and love a lot of different ones, cooked or raw so maybe me setting the example helps my kids to like them as well.

I dice things up and hide it in other foods when I can. Like lastnights meatloaf had tiny veggies diced in and not one of my kids even realized it :o)
