    Re: how to make child to eat vegetables

    Yes tinoo... Many children come under this category Though I've not come to this stage with my kid, I've seen my sister's children..

    Try to retain the colours of food...Avoid overcooking..

    Try preparing some other style like chinese fried rice...

    Let your child help choose fresh vegetables when you’re shopping.

    Prepare meals together (for example, younger children can wash, and older ones can chop vegetables for stir-fry dishes and salads).

    Serve raw or lightly steamed vegetables with salad dressing or cheese sauce for dipping.

    Set out a plate of raw vegetables or a salad of cold, cooked vegetables before the meal – the time when your child is hungriest

    Make mashed sweet potatoes instead of white potatoes – sweet potatoes contain lots of vitamin A

    But every doctor says this: Avoid forcing your children to eat vegetables – or any other food for that matter. Encourage children to try a spoonful, but don’t get upset if they refuse it. Eventually, they will try it, so keep reintroducing various foods from time to time.

    Hi tinoo... When you are going to market to buyvegetables/fruits, take him too with you and make him to choose vegetables ofhis own... this will make him toget an interest in vegetables.
