Kids Won't Eat Vegetables? Substitute This Healthy Food Instead! by One Tough Muther
A young mom contacted me about her 4-year-old’s diet.“She won’t try anything, and getting her to eat a vegetable is like waging war,” she said. My question? Why make mealtime a battlefield? Vegetables are just not appealing to most young kids.
The solution? Fruit. Place a slice of apple on the plate or a few halved grapes, oranges or melon wedges; any fruit at mealtime works. Fruit is nutritious and contains natural sugar, so kids love it. Match up the fruit with the meal and alternate, so you supply different vitamins. BOOM! No more shout heard round the world – from you or your child!
