How to get picky eaters to eat their veggies… my take on this article

How to get kids (and other picky eaters) to eat their veggies..

This is a really great article. I have never had a problem eating vegetables. My grandmother use to feed my sister and I frozen vegetables for snacks when we were little and staying at her house. Yes, I do get some strange looks from my husband when I eat frozen vegetables, but I think it is a fun snack. I am so thankful that Mike likes vegetables and is willing to try new ones. Every week when we pick up our vegetable co-op bag, we never know what we are going to get, but we are prepared to try whatever it may be. We have recently started finding other ways besides just boiling or steaming vegetables to eat them. I really enjoy any of them roasted, grilled, stir fry, mixing a bunch of them together into a salad, or even roasting them and adding them to pasta with a small bit of olive oil or any delicious light sauce. We need to get away from the processed food world, don’t get me wrong I like to eat a french fry every once in a while, but the other day at the grocery store I overheard a small child asking his parents why they don’t ever shop in that part of the store, the child was referring to the produce department, and yes when you looked in their basket everything was in a box or a frozen meal bag. Local co-ops have great deals on fresh food. I know it takes a little bit longer to make fresh food than boxed food, but at least we know what is going into our bodies and not some wonder of processed food that could sit in our colon for years.

Maybe some of these tricks in this article will work on some of the adults in my life that refuse to eat anything that isn’t covered in butter, grease, mashed, or fried.
