Make Eating Veggies Fun.

Sometimes a little silliness inspires your kids to try a new veggie. Make fun arrangements or shapes out of cut veggies, such as faces or rainbows. Making the pieces in miniature sizes also makes eating veggies more child-friendly. Try creating a mandala pattern on the plate, as kids love colorful and fancy presentations.

Give names to the veggies, like Bobby Broccoli. Choose colorful vegetables, including surprise variations like orange bell peppers and purple carrots. Relate these vegetables into fun things that your child already loves and make eating them into a game, such as pretending you're Peter Rabbit visiting the farmer's garden and nibbling on all the carrots. You can also use cookie cutters or mandolins to cut veggies into fun shapes for the kids.
