Tips & strategies make vegetables MORE enjoyable

Start early

The secret to raising a child that loves eating vegetables is to eat lots of vegetables when nursing because flavour preferences are created before 6 months

Make it normal

The mere presence of a vegetable alongside the chicken, steak or pasta, improves the status of the meal, and the chef, transforming it to a LOVE PACKAGE

Lead by example

You want your child to eat wholesome nutritious food, so that they grow up healthy and skinny, but demanding it, is unlikely to work in the long run.

Make it "easy"

improve palatability

If you don’t add a little oil to your salad, it really doesn’t taste terribly good, the calorie count is seriously low, but so is the nutrient count ....

Disguise the bitterness

About 70 % of kids belong to the “broccoli tastes really yuk” club. If you want your child to swallow it, then you need to serve it with a cloaking device.

improve accessability

You want your family to eat a few more fruits and vegetables. Unfortunately, that apple doesn’t stand a chance, when pitted against a twinkie, but it can...

Get buy in

The more the kids peel potatoes and cut carrots, the more likely they are to actually eat the vegetables. Little chefs are cooking up better food choices.
The dinner table is often the primary battle ground in the fight for better health. You’re doomed if he sees that dinner you’ve prepared as a food fight.
You desperately want your kid to “eat right”. On the home front, you have control over what junior shovels down, but beyond your home is another story.

Market the vegetables

Make them sexy
Getting kids (and husbands) to eat their vegetables is frequently an uphill battle. Getting that broccoli to slide down, could just require a name change.
give lots of options
The “I am full message” is easily overridden by the sensory regions of the brain so the option to eat a variety of foods leads to more food being eaten.
sell the benefits
The secret to a healthy skin colour is not to bake in the sun for hours BUT in eating tomoato puree and carrot soup.

Don't force it

That night light may not be protecting your child from the boogeyman – if the light is not red, it is aligned with the boogeyman.
You want to decrease the risk of breast cancer, not just detect it early, since being exposed to light at night, ups the risk, be sure to sleep IN THE DARK
You’re a regular Jo, most nights, you climb into bed and ……………you’re off to dreamland. Sleep issues don’t explain your weight problems. Not so fast…….
