If your kids are being picky eaters, it might be because they don’t know what to do with new vegetables. To help them get used to new vegetables, try something like a roasted carrot or cauliflower. Give them a colorful vegetable that looks different than their usual food for dinner and see how they react. If they don’t like it at first, you can still add it to other dishes like pasta or salads for some time before trying again.
Try Different Cooking Methods and Flavors
Eating vegetables is more enjoyable when they are cooked in different ways. Roasted vegetables are delicious, but they can be boring if you only use one seasoning. Experiment with different cooking methods, such as grilling, steaming and sautéing.
You can also experiment with different flavors by adding ingredients such as garlic and herbs.
Add Sauces for Flavor
When kids don’t like a food on its own, sometimes it’s because that food doesn’t have enough flavor. If you want your kids to eat vegetables, try adding a sauce to them. This will make the vegetables taste better and more appetizing. Some sauces that work well are yogurt, cheese, or peanut butter.
