“Ewww, not broccoli!” or “I’m not eating those carrots!” are common phrases echoed by many children at mealtimes, but it doesn’t have to be this way. Parents can do several things to get children to eat and enjoy a variety of fruits and vegetables. Children develop food preferences at an early age so the earlier and more often children eat vegetables, the better.
