Want Your Toddler or Preschooler to Eat Veggies? Tell Him Not to Eat Them!

Frustrated that your toddler or preschooler won’t eat vegetables? Play this fun game where it’s OK if he or she disobeys (it’s the point, actually!). 

  • Make faces on his or her pizza, sandwich, etc., using vegetables. 
  • Pretend that you need to turn away, but warn him or her in a daring-but-playful way, “DO NOT eat that nose!” 
  • Repeat with each part that you’ve created with the vegetables (ears, eyes, hair bow, bow tie, hair, etc.). 

Little ones may love this game of in-your-face rebellion, and it’s the kind that’s full of giggles, memories and … drum roll please … nutrition!
