How do you teach your kids to like veggies? One of my kids is very picky. One day he likes broccoli, the next day he doesn’t like it. His body mass is below his level.

 

Children can be very hard to feed! If your son is growing normally, and has plenty of energy to play and learn, he is probably getting what he needs. Remember that he learns primarily by example, so if you consume more whole grain foods, fruit and vegetables, he may eventually be persuaded to do the same. If your son enjoys broccoli (or another fruit or vegetable) one day and not the next, this is very normal. Keep offering your children healthy options each day even if they do not chose to eat them. Research has shown that children often have to be offered a new food up to 15 times before they will taste it!
