Remember - it can take young children several times of trying a new food before they accept it. So your child may not like the brocolli at first, but if you try and try again, your child may find he enjoys it. Last night my 10 year-old made her own dinner of two fried eggs. I told her she needed a veggie with her meal- she said salad did not go with eggs so I told her about the baby kale in the fridge. She was not too sure, but decided to give it a try - she sauted it with a little olive oil and LOVED it emoticon

For a small child an idea might be to make up some vegetable 'fritters'. They make great 'finger' food. The veggies can be cut up small too. This can include every combination of vegetable, rice, oats, etc. and an egg for a binder. See SP for recipe ideas. Pan fry or bake in muffin cups. After you see if you're going to like them -- freeze the extras for a quick to-go snack or on the run meal.

I think it is a good idea to teach our kids to eat (and learn to like) the most 'natural' form of fruits and veggies. Helping them appreciate the 'undressed' foods and tastes also so they don't always have to have food 'dressed' with seasonings, sauces and fillers.

I have personally struggled with learning to like the bland the plain and the natural forms of some foods (broccoli for one). emoticon
I like broccoli "dressed up" even if it's only a little steaming and a sprinkle of salt.

Update! NO MORE Wiggle room on my weight! Still figuring out how to keep balance and stay in charge. Staying active but could step it up again.

Thanks everyone! I'm excited to start this and get myself and my family eating better, it was a HUGE victory to even get my 2 year old to eat the TINIEST piece of broccoli last night (we had to bribe him.... emoticon ) but he DID eat it, and a piece of fish too! It's a small step away from the constant hot dog and fries diet he's been on....

You're bound to learn 'something' here!!!! It's great you are
starting so young and can be an example to your little boy as he grows.

Glad you're here!

Hi everyone - I'm a young mom to one fantastic little boy! I'm not entirely new to the idea of clean eating but I in process of putting it into practice :) I'm taking it slow, and really learning what's what and cutting things out along the way. I wanted to join this group to get support, ideas, and helpful information!
