    I feel so bad for saying this, but all 3 of my kids LOVE ALL I dont know what it’s like to have a child not like veggies & I always loved veggies as a child, so maybe it’s genetic? lol ;)

      Shhhh — don’t say that too loud, GypsyFox! My kids are big veggie eaters for kids, I think. I’d say that my 7-year-old actually does love them, and I’m very glad.

    I’m with GypsyFox, my kids love veggies. Especially raw veggies. I think a bigger problem with kids who don’t like veggies is how they are cooked. My kids are texture picky, so a squishy over-cooked veggie is rejected where the same vegetable is eaten right off the vine in our back yard. Makes all the difference. I just can’t imagine hooking your kid on dips, because as I’ve found with hot dogs..once you start down the dips (or ketchup in this case) road it’s hard to get them to eat the food rather than just sucking the dip off.

      I agree Audrey! The most popular way I prepare veggies is just steamed, and the kids think that they are fine. However, they do really enjoy raw veggies.

      But they never eat the vegetables served at school, because they are bland and mushy — gross!

    My kids are getting more picky about their veggies as they get older and it’s such a pain. Alex prefers his veggies raw, which would be great if we didn’t use frozen veggies most of the time. But for him it’s definitely a texture thing.

      Yep. I’ve noticed that with Amanda as well, as far as being more picky. But then Kyle seems to be eating MORE veggies, so it’s a trade-off.

    Probably the healthiest thing I do is eat frequent, small meals/snacks throughout the day – I think it keeps your metabolism steady!
