Magic with Vegetables
Do your kids eat vegetables? When my kids were young I took steps, even great lengths to encourage vegetable tasting. My kids grew up on Chinese stir fry mostly comprised of crisp tender vegetables. Doses of crunchy, raw vegetable sticks went out the door tucked in brown bags with a wave goodbye and ‘have a good day’ wishes.
Years later I heard one child confess that those colorful packages of veggies rarely left the lunchroom in his stomach. Sometimes he used them as a valuable trading commodity and other days they ended up in the trash barrel. Be that as it may, he along with the other three children not only learned to eat their vegetables, they acquired affection for them. Maybe the shapes and color combinations of raw vegetables made a difference.
That’s where I’m going with this “VegeMagic’ Series. I’m featuring some fun ideas and photos to inspire your kids to eat more vegetables. Try some ‘warfare’ options, ‘flower power’ veggies or some ‘fence post’ sticks on for size. It’s a touch of magic.
