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?

 My kid like many veggies and we've always just made them a part of our daily life.  We eat usually 2 servings of fruit and 2-3 servings of veggies minimum every day.

 I add spices to them and add them to meals.

For example, my kid's love roasted broccoli and green beans with garlic on them.

I offer them both raw and cooked vegetables . . . some like them raw, some prefer them cooked.

I don't really have to get her to eat vegetables she always wanted to. She loves raw carrots. I have had trouble getting her to eat lettuce but I find if you mix it with fennel which tastes like black licorice she eats it right up. :)

I am so fortunate, she loves most veggies! One particular favorite (of the whole family) are the frozen carrots in honey glaze.

We have never had any issues with the kids eating veggies. They love all kinds of veggies.
