7 Kid Favorite Veggies

7 Kid Favorite Veggies from weelicious.com

My kids love vegetables. It wasn’t always that way with each of them, but over the years, through the stages and phases I can get them to eat vegetables without fuss or anxiety. These 7 kid favorite veggies will get even the pickiest of eaters to change their ways. The first and most important tip to get a kid to love them is to change the way they’re prepared. Does you kid hate over cooked, soggy Brussels sprouts? Try lightly sautéing them in bacon so they have a slightly smoky, salty flavor. It will immediately have them intrigued. Not a fan of sweet potatoes? Cut them into sticks, toss with cinnamon and bake them up. Even raw kale can get some extra love with a sprinkle of jazzy seasoning and time in the oven to crisp them up. 

Don’t get frustrated or give up just because your little one gives you the Heisman when you’re offering a new vegetable at dinner. All you need to do is switch up your tactic. Serve raw vegetables with hummus, top pizza dough with plenty of gooey cheese and assorted green veggies or mix a few bite size favorites like edamame and corn and turn into a bite size stir fry. No matter what you do, make it fun, eat them with your kids and show them that eating veggies is delicious and nutritious!
