Playing with your food

May 4, 2014
By PATTY HAMMOND , Observer Today

Getting kids to eat more vegetables can be a real challenge. Most vegetables aren't naturally sweet or salty, two things that draw many of us to specific foods, and some have strong flavors that can take time to learn to appreciate. So, the best thing you can do to build a desire to eat more vegetables more often is to start early. People begin to develop food preferences during the first few years of life, and those preferences often last a lifetime. That's why you want to make sure you're offering a variety of vegetables to your very young children as often as possible.
