Here are some fun ways to get your child to eat more vegetables:
Get your child involved in the cooking process. Kids are more likely to eat veggies if they are part of the preparation. Let younger children wash the vegetables and let older children help you use a grater or food processor.
Buy some seeds and help your child grow vegetables in a pot or in the yard. Check out the Beginners Guide to Gardening with Kids for ideas.
Have your child help pick out new veggies at the grocery store to try. Children will be more likely to cooperate and try new things if they get to make some of the decisions.
Make veggies sound "cool". For example, tell your child that dinosaurs used to eat trees to grow healthy and strong. Then have him or her pretend to be a dinosaur eating trees.
