10 Ways to Get Kids to Eat Their Veggies

10 Ways to Get Kids to Eat their Veggies is a collaboration with Flatout Flatbread, a brand that compensated me for my work.  

IMG_6708-XLParents for generations have faced the not-always-easy challenge of how to get kids to eat vegetables. Some little ones take to a plate of produce like a duck to water, while others stare down a salad like it’s nothing short of torture. Back in the day, the “clean plate club” approach meant generations of kids sat at the kitchen table until they polished off every last pea. But we know today that such tactics can backfire, breeding a deep dislike rather than a warm embrace of all things green.

Common sense tells us that it’s better not to force or even cajole kids into eating vegetables, but to organically introduce healthy foods, an abundance of vegetables among them, into their world. It’s with that philosophy in mind that I wrote my first e-book devoted to the topic of encouraging kids to belly up to the salad bar.

Truth? It’s a little closer to an e-booklet than an e-book, but nevertheless, inside you’ll find 10 ideas and six recipes that put a positive spin on promoting produce. Who knows, with patience and perseverence, your kids will accept foods they once professed to hate, and yes, they may just like, and even love, their veggies.

Hi Katie! I’m a big fan of your blog and Congratulations on the e-book! I went to make the Ranch Dressing recipe in it today and found a small type-o. The ingredient list does not have garlic in it, but it is mentioned in the directions. I found the original recipe on your web site so I was able to continue. Just wanted to mention it. Good luck!
