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 put them on their plates and they see their parents eat the same vegetables.  It's always been that simple in our house.  I have friends who dont' eat ANY veg and freak out at their kids for not eating their veg.  It's hard but you have the be the change you seek when it comes to kids sometimes.

I blend them into a puree and add them to pasta sauce.

I mix them into my crock pot dishes so they don't always realize they are eating them.

I use vegetable pasta since it has a serving or two of veggies in it.

I add a little sugar to it when I can to give it more flavor (brown sugar on carrots is delicious).

I put parmesean cheese (sprinkled) onto broccoli.  They love that!

I serve it with a side of ranch, since they love the act of dipping it!
