Yummy Ways to Get Kids to Eat Vegetables2:10 PM
My boys are not the greatest when it comes to eating their vegetables. My 6 year old will eat almost anything you set in front of him, but the others usually try to steer clear. Below are a few ways that I have found recently, to make veggies a little more appealing.

Mystery Mashed Potatoes
In our house, cauliflower and broccoli are all but outlawed by the children. However, I can sneak some pureed broccoli or cauliflower into regular mashed potatoes and the boys have no idea. Not only do they eat some veggies that are good for them, but they think there is no fighting or gagging.
If you make anything sweet, kids are sure to eat it. Add some honey or a tad of maple syrup to some steamed carrots and watch how fast they disappear. It doesn't have to be a lot or unhealthy, just a little bit is enough to give it a sweet taste and make it more appetizing to veggie haters.
How do you make vegetables more palatable to your little ones?
