My kids will eat anything with a "dip" ! Dip is Ranch Dressing !

We started with cut up carrots and celery. Now they eat sliced cucumbers, green pepper strips and tomato slices.

Try different kinds of "dip" to see which one they like the best or maybe they like a variety of differnt kind of dressings.

I also found that if they help me cook dinner , they are more apt to eat it.
Let them help you cut up veggies for a salad. Butter knives are fine for little ones to cut up cucumbers and they can rip lettuce into pieces. Older kids can use a knife as well to cut other veggies.

Omelets are great too. Our favorite is green peppers and onions.. really they love it !

Try out things like butternut and yogurt 'salad'
or baked mushroom and tomato parcels.

I don't like vegetables. My younger 2 kids don't either. I need a recipe that will help disguise vegetables without adding a lot of fat.
