I myself love vegetables. There really isn't any vegetable I don't like. My kid however, are a different story. My daughter is more open minded than my son, but she is 3 and he is 6. The age itself let's them think they get the choice whether to eat it or not. Believe it or not, Ranch Dressing is a blessing, I always say. Usually, if you put ranch on it, my kids will eat it. Zach loves his corn, peas, and salad. Nevaeh loves broccoli and carrots. Now, trying to get them to eat or at least try everything is something else. I will mix the veggies in with the mashed potatoes, or just add some gravy to it, anything to kind of cover it, so it doesn't look that much like veggies. My kids have adopted the add ranch to everything, ok you want to eat your broccoli carrots in a drop of ranch ok, fine with me.

After the kids see the same veggies over and over again, they know I at least want them to try them out. They usually end up liking them after they take a few bites. When I was little my grandpa would make "creamed" everything! Beans, carrots, peas, corn, you name it, he would cream it! That helped us kids love to eat the veggies too. As his "special white sauce" was amazing. It was just milk, butter, and a little cornstarch to thinken it up, sometimes, he would add a pinch of sugar or sweetener to it just to say it was a treat. I miss him so much!

I ma excited to share with you these Green Giant® Valley Fresh Steamers™ Vegetables with Pasta. My daughter absolutely loves the broccoli, noodles, and cheese. I LOVE the alfredo one. Green Giant offers many different products to choose from both frozen, and canned.

My son loves broccoli (amazingly!) so this would be perfect for us. I'd never get to use the stress reliever though because I'm sure the toddler would kidnap it for his play kitchen!
