I wish I had a nickel….

I have been asked so many times over the past 20 years how I get all the kids I teach to eat their veggies and other healthy foods. Two things come to mind:

1) Get them involved with the process–helping to choose recipes, going to Farmer’s Market or grocery store, have the kiddos wash and help prepare the meal, even if that is simply adding the veggies to the pot of soup.

2) Most important by far. Lead by example. If you’re eating a bag of chips and tell you child to eat their broccoli, it might not work.
