Readers Respond: How Do You Make Vegetables Taste Good to Kids

Be the first to respond


From the article: Kid-Friendly Vegetables
One of the reasons kids resist eating vegetables is that they just don't taste good. It sounds obvious, but there are lots of different ways to prepare vegetables to make them taste better.

For example, roasting brings out the natural sugars in vegetables and often makes them more appealing to kids (try my roasted green beans). Frying makes vegetables like zucchini and Brussels sprouts almost irresistible. And covering with cheese sauce is an age-old tactic used by parents for generations.

What tips and tricks do you have for making vegetables more palatable to kids? Do they work? Share your solutions!
