How to get your kids to eat veggies and not candy

 

I began teaching healthy cooking to children at the Boys and Girls Club on Page Street in San Francisco in January 2010. I would hold up a broccoli or an asparagus and kids would make faces and say things like yucky to give me their disapproval. I carried on in the face of the criticism. We would roast vegetables and when they were pulled out of the oven and ready to eat.. I discovered a miracle. The children ate them with such delight and joy and enthusiasm.. I thought I must have been cooking candy instead of vegetables. They would eat every last one of the vegetables in a matter of minutes and then beg for more. This was not what I expected.. it was as if the children were deficient and did not know it and NEEDED these vegetables more than we all knew.
