Getting Your Kids to Eat Their Veggies

  • Try different vegetables in different ways, like standing broccoli florets in mashed potatoes and calling them "trees in the snow."

  • Steam vegetables lightly so they taste better.

  • Eat vegetables yourself as a good example to your kids.

  • Go to a farm where you can pick your own vegetables, or plant a garden.

  • Cut carrots, celery or green peppers into dipping sticks and serve with a low-fat dip.

  • Use red bell peppers, bright carrot strips and different types of lettuce to brighten up the meal. Bake shoestring "fries" out of sweet potatoes.

  • Don't give up: They might eat those green beans next time.
