I take care of a special need adult, she has a multitude of medical and physical problems, and she will usually eat anything, but Veggies was a hard one, she wouldn't try anything new. I found a way to get her to eat more. We play a game in the store. Every week we go to get groceries, she gets to pick one new veggie to try, and if she picks one with out too much fuss, she can watch an hour of her favourite video when she gets home.
I know this sounds like I might be treating her like a child, but this actually works for her, because of the mental challenges she faces her mind is between the ages of 2 and 6 years old, and if this works for her, maybe it will work for you and people u look after or your kids.
I have cherry bushes and they are ripe to pick. Granddaughter wanted to help so I let her. They grow along the branches and it is really neat. Easy to pick and she picked one at a time so I told her to get several. Next thing I know, I am putting a handful in the box she is eating as fast as I pick.
