Can anyone say sarcasm? You would think I was trying to feed them poop when I offer any type of vegetable. Immediate revulsion and a lot of screaming just to see a vegetable on their plate.
My latest scheme is to do color themed snack time. Today was orange.
Somehow, it makes carrots look much more exciting to them.
Side note… I have a confession to make… I might have lied to my children at one point (please don’t tell!). I might have told them that if they eat carrots it will help them see REALLY far. I might also have pretended to see about a mile away after eating several carrots. And they just might have believed me. And maybe, just maybe, they both actually ate a carrot afterwards…
I also hear tell that a lot of kids will eat veggies if they have a dip for it that they like. My kids unfortunately are not of this persuasion. But this is a dip for those that are.
Herbed Veggie Dip
- 8 oz sour cream
- 3 Tablespoons milk
- juice of 1 lemon
- chopped fresh herbs (I used Dill and Parsley, Thyme is also a nice one with lemon)
Mix together and serve. Lasts about a week covered in the fridge.
