Last week, Oliver kept talking about how much he loves vegetables (he never ever ever eats vegetables no matter how hard we try). All day, he kept asking to eat carrots and cucumbers for dinner. I asked if he wanted them cut up. He replied no. Just whole. So, along with his taco and guacamole, I handed him a whole carrot and a whole cucumber. Which he proceeded to take bites of, pretend to love, and then spit it out immediately onto his plate.
Poor guy. He so very badly wants to love his veggies, but he just doesn’t. Do your kids eat veggies? Oliver used to eat everything as a baby, but now can spot a green speck of parsley on his plate from a mile away and will go nowhere near it. Do you hide veggies in food? I’m kind of against it in concept (I want my kids to know what they are eating and learn to appreciate the different flavors) but worry that they aren’t getting all the important stuff they need food-wise.
How do you deal with veggie-haters in your home?
