"My child refuses to eat vegetables"

New foods might take many tries before your child likes it.
  • New foods may take some time -- sometimes 10 or more tries!
  • Patience works better than pressure. This is a hard one to remember after we work hard to prepare a meal for our family.
  • Try new foods yourself! Show your kids it's fun to eat something new.
  • Add pureed vegetables into pancakes or muffins.
  • Don't offer new foods when your child is really hungry, wait for a more relaxed situation.

Try This

Buy frozen veggies and heat a tiny portion. This will avoid wasting food that your child is not ready to eat.
