Q & A

For those of you with kids or grandkids, do you have any suggestions for getting them to eat their vegetables?  I have tried bribery, begging, hiding them in food, smoothies.

    • Don’t give them a choice.  They can eat or go hungry.  Sounds mean, but unless it’s something they have a violent dislike to, they will eat.

      Don’t give them other options.  Don’t keep other snack foods in the house.

    • It’s a tough call. When I had our granddaughter every day and she was transitioning to solid food she ate everything I put in front of her. Now she just refuses to eat anything green except broccoli.

      My mother did as Tulip suggested - there was no choice. We ate what was on our plates and that was it. The positive aspect of that was we always knew what to expect and there was no negotiation - it was consistent.

      Good luck with whatever method you try. I know it’s frustrating.

    • Involve the kids in the food prep!  Find interesting ways to make the veggies and have them help.  I also had some luck with sprinkling parmesan cheese on veggies.
