1. Involve your Kids in the Kitchen
Take your kids with you to the grocery store and let them pick the veggies. Let your child into your kitchen and let them wash and peel the veggies and ask them how they want to veggies to be cooked.
2. Veggies with Their Favorite Food
If pizza is your kid’s favorite food, add some veggies in their pizza. Some kids are willing to experiment, let them choose what veggies they like on their pizza. Mixing their favorite food with veggies can lead to them liking veggies.

Pediatricians claim that if veggies look fun, kids will be more willing to eat them. Cut up the veggies to make smiling faces or even call the broccoli “trees”.

Forcing your kid to eat veggies, can led to them hating veggies. Don’t get frustrated or mad if your kid doesn’t want to eat his veggies. There are some things your child just won’t eat.

Don’t give up if your child doesn’t like the taste of broccoli. Your kid’s taste can change as he grows up. Some kids just need to try the food a couple of times before they start liking it.
