Carol the Carrot and Tiny Tree Tops

Vegetables are the hardest foods to introduce to toddlers and kids. These days, it is difficult to teach kids to eat healthy vegetables and fruits. One of my friends has this major dilemma on how will she teach her toddler son to start liking or simply have a taste of the vegetables she serves. One of the advices given to her by one of our friends is to play imagine with her kids and start giving names to some popular vegetables like the carrots, potatoes, lettuce, squash and broccoli. She said she also gave silly and sometimes hero like characteristics to these veggies to make her kids interested in eating them. I also tried it and called that orange root the x-ray vision carrots and I happily watched my son’s eyes light up and devour his meal!
