The number one key to getting kids to eat their vegetables is interest. If you can find a way to catch their interest, you’re well on your way to hearing your child request a second helping of brussels sprouts at dinner. Seriously, dreams do come true. But it takes time. And one of the best ways to capture interest is through involvement. It will earn you some extra time in the kitchen and will sometimes leave you scratching your head as to what exactly ended up on your walls, but the messes and time are all worth it when kids gain a sense of ownership and pride in the meals they help make.
