get 5 servings of veggies a day. I'm working on it though.

Do yours get 5 servings?

The veggies they had today were butternut squash, kale and broccoli. The broccoli wasn't a full serving though. So they got half the recommended :/

 Nope. They probably get 2 at most. I serve veggies at dinner, and they get some at lunch. They don't like them very much, but they will eat a small portion on brocolli, carrots, peas, or green beans.

I try to eat salad daily for some greens. I honestly cannot stand the taste of any vegetable.

Nope, I don't even eat that many vegetables in a day. They usually get one serving at breakfast, lunch and dinner, one serving from juice and that's it.
