It was never difficult to get our children to eat vegetables.
We taught them the colours of the rainbow (ROYGBIV) by what’s on the plate (good thing we had a blue tablecloth).
Meals are habitually at the dinner table.
:: Also if they weren’t keen on first taste: “That’s OK, we’ll try again another time.”
No stress attitude; add in the fun of trying new things … no problem.
:: No menu was offered. Eat what’s on the plate, one reheat, and, if not finished within two minutes of the last adult, finished! and what’s left on the plate is the first thing you eat next meal. Not surprisingly, I think that only happened twice.
