How do you get your kids to eat vegetables?

Veggies  1 of 1

We’ve always been thankful that for the most part, Liv is an adventurous eater. She loves things that I didn’t enjoy until my 20s (like quinoa, artichokes, pho, chia pudding, and green juices to name a few), and I’m glad that she’ll at least try anything, even if she decides she’s not a fan. Don’t get me wrong, as we definitely have our picky days over here, but I think as far of the grand scheme of things go, she’s a very good little eater.

I try to make the food delicious, and something I’d want to eat, and usually if that’s the case, she wants to eat it, too. Another way to get a preschooler to eat something: make it for yourself. They instantly want it haha. 

Here are some of the things that I think have helped:

Homemade raw pitaya cheesecake

Time for an afternoon sweet treat…. I’m on a pitaya kick and I can’t.be.stopped. It’s been a way to switch it up from acai (though don’t get me wrong, I still love my acai). Pitaya is lower in sugar and higher in antioxidants. Oh, and it’s this gorgeous bright pink color, so that’s always fun. […]
