Veggie talk

Oh mommies with what seems to be infinite wisdom from experiance how on earth did you get your 15 month olds to eat veggies and how did you start introducing them to them? Did they take to them at first or was it a few tries in? I have been trying everything with him and he only seems to like corn.....

    With Tristen I just keep giving it to him. More times then not he keeps trying it and eventually likes it. I'm pretty fortunate that he likes most things but veggies are hard. He still won't eat green beans even though I keep giving them to him. Although after about 7-8 times of giving him broccoli he loves it now.

      Have you tried offering Gabriel yogurt or ranch dip to dip veggies in? I would start in small portions and keep trying something new until you find a few he likes and will eat.

      Tip for next year: I have also found that growing our own veggies opens children up to trying new veggies and even liking ones they had previously declared they disliked. Even having veggie plants on a patio will allow for the same kind of experience.

        Keep trying. I think I read somewhere that foods have to be introduced like 25 times before your child will know whether or not they actually like them. Crazy, I know. Best of luck!
