Sometimes , somedays….well, I just give in. I lose the will to live over the vegetable wars.
I am lucky that my daughter does love carrots and will eat broccoli, peas and occasionally sweetcorn…My son on the other hand, pulls a face that indicates he ihas been poisoned, should anything other than baked beans appear on his plate.
I will be honest, I am not the greatest vegetable eater either. And today this will change.
I read an interesting article online that indicated children can be fussy eaters in order to survive..It would seem our cultures have evolved way faster than our basic instincts. What it comes down to, is that children like familiar stuff because they know they ate it before and didn’t die.
Now I grant you, this might seem like an off the wall approach, but I am going to run with it. But on my terms. We will not longer have boring peas, I shall add chopped bacon and maybe some onion. Brocolli will be stir fried with sauce instead of steamed. sweetcorn will be encased in a fritter..or god forbid actually mixed in with the fish pie. sweet potatoes will be appearing twice weekly (yum).
I can no longer tolerate a boring vegetable….let the vegetable carnival commence 🙂
Best wishes….a soon to be much healthier Sky x
Try them with vegetable pakoras – kids will eat anything deep fried!
fab idea 🙂
