Getting Your Kids to Eat Their Vegetables

Your kids aren't eating their vegetables - sound familiar?

Who hasn't encountered difficulty getting their kids to eat vegetables? It isn't something we can ignore and we can't let kids not eat their vegetables. Vegetables are very important to a balanced diet - especially for growing children. Vegetables and fruits are important beause they supply vital vitamins and minerals, antioxidants and other important nutrients to the body. They help prevent diseases and infections. They also supply dietary fiber which helps the bowels.

One of the best and most efficient ways to expose your kids to a large variety of fruits and vegetables is by making fruit salads, cut vegetable platters, carrot salads, avocado salad - the list can go on and on.

If your kids resist - make sure they taste the dish. Don't let them rule out the salads until they've tried it.
