If you find this task a bit of a challenge, there are some techniques you can follow and a lot of ideas to finally make your children eat vegetables. Here are some of the brilliant tips you can try.
1. Add vegetables secretly to their favorite dishes.
It is the perfect way for them to eat vegetables while loving their meals.
For example, you can have diced tomatoes, zucchini, or pieces of artichoke hearts on your pizza. You can also do the same for your omelet. And then, for your pasta, you can add mushrooms, spinach, and carrots.
2. Make your vegetable recipes fun.
You can cook carrot madeleines, salted zucchini, etc.
The presentation can also make a difference so you can devise how it will look on their plates. Why don’t you try drawing a face on the plate using vegetables like green beans and tomatoes? Or any fun arrangement will do.
3. Involve your kids when cooking.
Have them do the washing of the vegetables, and peeling beans, or cut some of them in half.
Choose easy-to-cook veggie recipes for kids. If they know how these meals are cooked, they will more likely eat them especially if they were the ones who made it.
If you think that making your children eat vegetables is a challenge, you are not alone. Other parents go through the same dilemma but you need to know that you can make it happen.
Start that habit in your kids today.
