I love vegetables more than I love fruit. I would rather have a veggie any day. I love all kinds of veggies too and enjoy finding creative ways to present them to the kids. We’ve tried cooking them together:
The kids and I made Roasted Asparagus, and they had a lot of fun helping me, and were even willing to try them. I’ve also tried giving them a rainbow of veggies meal.
You know my daughter’s favorite color is purple and she loves purple cabbage because it’s purple, and she even tried eggplant because of the color, so using the color of veggies is a great way to get kids to try their veggies.
If all else fails, we have a bag of carrots available at every meal. The bag of carrots also serves for a filler. My children (I’m the luckiest mom in the world) love to eat, and if they are still hungry at the end of the meal then they get to have a bag of carrots. Usually that’s how I can tell if they are still hungry or not, because if they go for that extra bag of carrots then they are still hungry. They usually say, uh, no I’m full then.
That being said, carrots and all veggies are better cooked and country crock aims to help with 70% less saturated fat than butter. Country Crock ensures your veggies are not only nutritious but also delicious. Country Crock is my preferred butter choice, I have a HUGE tub of it in my fridge. We use it on grilled cheese, pancakes, and pretty much just about anything, especially when cooking veggies.

Gardening How-to Kit
The Veggie Party Kit was a great tool in teaching the kids even more about veggies. I work really hard at teaching Zoe and Miles to make healthy choices and its’ working. Zoe is learning all about making smart choices and will choose a fruit/veggie & cheese plate over Danish.
Our favorite activity in the Veggie Party Kit was the gardening How-to Kit.
The best way to get kids to eat their veggies is to get them involved.
