Ten ways to get kids to eat their veggies - CNN.com

My oldest will eat green beans and carrots from a can, but that's it. My youngest is a little vegetarian wannabe, I think. They're completely different!

Excellent tips in that article!

The one I don't agree with is hiding them. I'd much rather my kids knew what they were eating and learned to enjoy the flavours.

Getting kids involved with buying and cooking veg is an excellent way to get them interested. They're more likely to try stuff if they know where it comes from. We even grow some bits and pieces in the garden and they love eating their own vegetables.

I completely agree! I NEVER hide veggies, and I refuse to buy that book. (... although it would be great for my hubby. )

My kids are veggie lovers. I don't hide them either. It is kind of funny when my kids order salad with their meals (My older kids are 12, 10 and 7).

Melodie loves all kinds of veggies but I find she gets bored easily, so as long as we switch up her options, she'll eat all kinds of them!
