just an idea...

Dh and I together have 5 kids. I don't think there is a veggie out there that we all like and I don't believe in forcing kids to eat what they don't like however they each had to have a veggie with dinner.

Our solution....

We always kept salad in the refrig. If you didn't like the veggie served you could grab a salad!

Good solution. My kids won't try salad though. We like the same veggies pretty much though. Broccoli and carrots are number one here. Corn and green beans are number two. I'm happy with those four choices for dinner.

I like to keep carrots on hand for my dd.  If she doesn't like the veggie that we're having she gets cold carrots.

That's how it was when we were growing up. I am one of six.

I pretty much like all vegetables with the exception of okra, beets and lima beans. Brayden will eat broccoli, cauliflower and carrots if they are stewed. So we eat a lot of those 3. He hates green beans which I think is so odd.

Good idea.  That probably wouldn't help too much in my house as  my DH is the problem when it comes to veggies.  If he gets salad, he SMOTHERS it in dressing  lol

Ugh. I use to now I don't even put it on. I dip my fork then pick up my salad.

Great idea! My family seems to love all veggies except mushrooms. So we keep that on the side for those who really love it.

Nice idea. I also have 5 kids. I don't force my kids to eat things thy don't like, but they must try it. I find the "I don't like...xyz" is just a matter of familiarity, and thy eventually like it.
