Are you one of those parents that faces a major challenge in getting their kids to eat their veggies? I am. My oldest son is the exception when it comes to veggies – he can’t get enough. On the other hand, my little guy will almost never put a vegetable in to his mouth willingly. Talk about complete opposites. So with my youngest, sometimes I have to get a little fun and creative when it comes to getting him to eat his veggies. I have tried lots of different things ranging from sneaking them into other foods (my pasta sauce for example) to buying delicious Kraft Dips to help encourage my son to eat his veggies!
Here are some of the things I’ve tried over the years to get him to eat his veggies. These ideas are so convincing that you might even start eating your veggies, too.
Bake Amazing Meals
Okay, so looking at veggies, it’s pretty clear as to why kids don’t want to eat them – they look boring. So why not take those veggies to the next level? Try making dishes like stuffed peppers or bright and colorful salads to help convince your children to eat their veggies.
Sneak Them Into Other Foods
I have been known to mix some cauliflower into my mashed potatoes or chop up some veggies really finely to put into my pasta sauce. I love that the kids don’t even realize they’re eating veggies and as long as you tell them at some point when they’re are older, like when they’re 50, it’s not considered lying!
Make Sure They’re Hungry
One of my favorite ways to get my kids to eat their veggies is to make sure they’re hungry. It’s one of the first things I feed my kids when it’s time for a snack. They are more likely to eat their veggies if they are hungry and trust me on this one, I know from experience.
