Many kids doesn't like eating vegetables, they love candy, fry or meat but vegetables. Although vegetables do good to their healthy, most of them even hate them. So it is really a hard thing for parents to feed their kids these. How about your kids? Are they vegetable lover?

Hi Mjanne, I think you have to start them from young. My sister has 3 kids (3 to 9 years old), and they like vegetables which she has fed them from young, like broccoli, cucumber, tomatoes and carrots.

Yes my kids love, I suppose I never made them an issue, so its normal to them to just eat them, they were just served and they just eat them, and they have their favourite vegies but at least they do try the others, so Im happy.

Hi, mjanne! Yes, my kids love vegetables. They love brocolli, carrots, tomatoes, cauliflower, spinach, collard greens and sweet potatoes. They even love to eat lettice too. My kids have been like this since they were younger and still are. When I was pregnant, I used to eat all of these healthy veggies. I wonder, if that is why they love them so much..

Yup my girls love their veg and fruit and even some salad items too, food has never been an issue in this house a decent healthy meal is served if they tell me they dont like it thats fine but other than that they eat or dont eat it but dont go asking me for any junk food later on treats happen when you eat a good meal and not before! I dont make food an issue i dont force them to eat things but they also know they must at least try it before telling me they dont like it more often than not they try it and decide they do like it I know when they are lying so if they say they dont like it i can normally tell. I also set by good example so when i make a healthy meal I eat it too children learn a lot from us afterall!

For the most part my children like veggies. My son, however my son has his moments where everything is yucky. He picks that up from school, from the other kids who's parents don't make an issue out of eating healthy. Though, he knows the rules here at home, you must eat your veggies that get's put on your plate, before you can get dismissed from the table. My little girl, is a pig and will eat anything that's in front of her. She's not picky, which makes it smooth sailing for her, hopefully, she won't pick up the habits from the other's when she starts school, as my son did.
