I have a garden, i serve veggies with luncha dn dinner.....and snacks, and still my kids are so picky. My oldest doesnt do spicy, very mild eater, doesnt like tomatoes, bell peppers, so i try to not force those. My second oldest is pretty easy. My 3 yr old is so stubborn! He eats lots of fruits, and i have to fight him on his veggies. He would rather not eat than.eat them! Help!!! I need ideas!

I'm not sure because I can't really get my kids to eat veggies either. My son and oldest daughter eat salads. My son loves it because he eats this blush vinaigrette dressing that is sweet & sour. That is basically the only reason why he eats salad lol. I can sometimes get them to eat broccolli. They eat homemade guacamole.

My kids love veggies. My dd only refuses to eat squash. I can get her to eat it if I put it in hot dogs and potatoes. I get organic hot dogs and then load it up with veggies. They eat it right up.

I chop up potatoes and veggies. I saute them in a little oil and let everything cook up. The last few minutes I throw the hot dogs in to warm up and any spices I want to use. The last minute I usually throw in a chopped up tomato.

I really like steamed vegetables with ghee and sea salt. Or put some shredded cheese on top and stir it together.
