I’m finding myself hard pressed to get my kids to eat cooked veggies these days, especially as we explore new worlds and weird vegetables. Find yourself in the same situation?

Well, I guess we both need to read my recent article in Calgary’s Child Magazine about how to get your kids to eat more fruits and vegetables.

    Isn’t it amazing what a little prep work does for a mama? Great read!

  2. Love that tip about having a tray of sliced fruits and veggies always stocked up! Luckily my daughter is still young enough that I don’t have this problem!! I was such a picky child though and even now when I eat veggies I pretty much defeat the purpose, like she said w/ the cheese sauce 🙂 I prefer LOTS of butter salt and pepper though! Makes everything yummy!

  3. I wonder…Could you put a button for Goodcheapeats on your life as mom blog? (Maybe it’s there and I’m just blind or my fire wall is blocking it?) I looked all over for GoodCheapEats yesterday and couldn’t find it and of course today, I can remember what it is I wanted to look up on your food blog!

  4. We’ve been juicing. Spinach, chard, carrot, apple, pear & berries (blueberries mostly). The kids love it and are “drinking” the veggies.

  5. Great read! This is a constant problem in our house, as I have been a lifelong picky eater, too. Thankfully, at least, my husband and son aren’t nearly as picky as me and my daughters. 🙂

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
