How to Get Your Kids to Eat Vegetables

I have found the answer that parents have been searching for for centuries, or at least since the advent of Cocoa Puffs and Cool-Aid. I will qualify this by saying that it only works if you have more than one kid and if there is some degree of sibling rivalry between them.

Ready?

Here it is:

Don't put the veggies on your kids' plates. Put a small bowl of veggies on the table between them. I swear this works 2 out of 3 times. All of a sudden it becomes a competition between them. I have actually seen my girls fight over steamed cauliflower! Last night Little A was inhaling edamame so quickly, Adam thought she was going to choke.

You are so welcome for my brilliant insight.
