    Beets are the anti-food here. I can’t get my son to eat them. We usually roast them but he won’t have it. He’s two years old and we live in Florida.

    I’d love to get my son Lex (2 years, 2 months) to eat more green foods — broccoli, zucchini, peas, maybe even attempt a salad someday? I’d love any and all help in that department!

      Thanks for your question Marie! Based on our experience, I’d say two things: settle for a bite or two until he develops more of a taste for these things (as you know, everything comes and goes) then try the oldest trick in the parental book: bribery. We give Phoebe a bite of something she prefers, banana, after each bite of broccoli (or chicken, or chili, or really anything other than pizza and pasta…)

      If that doesn’t work, try the rest of the tips here: 7 ways to get toddlers to eat more green vegetables.

        I’m not sure what your stance is on vitamins and supplements for kids, but along with fixing greens for my kids daily, I give them each a Animal Planet brand chewable greens which helps them get the nutrients even if they’re not eating all the good green stuff. They’re tropical flavored and my almost-three-year old and 15-month-old LOVE them. (I cut the chewable in half for my younger child).
