You may have lucked out with a child who loves to eat fresh vegetables, but many parents face a tall order when it comes to getting their kids to eat anything "green," or red, purple or yellow for that matter, if it's in fact a vegetable. Most kids will eat one or two healthy veggies, but getting them to branch out can be tough. Try blending a whole slew of vegetables (along with some fruit), in your blender and serve your tot a nutritious smoothie. Here are 7 kid-approved organic fruit and vegetable smoothies to enjoy. If you find your kiddos will happily down veggies in liquid form, move on to these 6 homemade fruit and veggie juice recipes they're sure to love. Kids are more apt to try foods that they have grown from a seed or chosen from a farmer's market themselves. This handy tutorial will help you start a family vegetable garden this spring. We're certain your little ones will love eating (or at least tasting!) the fruits of their labor. Once your food is in full bloom, here are 5 ways to indulge in homegrown vegetables with your family. If you lack a green thumb, consider signing up for a local CSA! Here's a guide to joining and making the most of your Community Supported Agriculture. Once you have a bevy of veggies, you'll need some inspiration on how to prepare them. Here are 7 fun, kid-friendly salad recipes that go beyond iceberg lettuce.

If your kids do indeed like vegetables and you want to expand your repertoire, read our guide to greens: how to introduce collards, kale, and more into your family's diet. Feeling like the only one in your circle who's raising their kids on a plant-based diet? We spoke to several vegan and vegetarian parents, to discover the theories and challenges behind how they feed their children. And since we're about to have a bounty of produce at spring and summer farmers markets in the near future, grab a copy of At the Farmers Market With Kids: Recipes and Projects for Little Hands.
