Veggie stories? I’m all ears!
Do you know how superheroes are made? Just add Super, Mr. or Ms. to any vegetable name and there you go! A great new story to tell your child to make them love veggies! You’re not the only parent worrying about your child not eating vegetables. Most parents do. And while it’s not easy to get your little one to start enjoying their veggies, it’s not impossible either.
Telling your little one exciting stories about “unpopular foods” like veggies will allow the child to become familiar with them, and it increases the likelihood of your child accepting and eating them.
So, let’s take it one step at a time to cleverly make them love veggies… for life we hope:
- Invent an exciting story where the superhero character loves vegetables. The character could be a cartoon, an animal or a real person.
- Conjure up some adventures the superhero goes on: include activities that your child enjoys e.g. kicking a ball, swimming or playing with a sibling.
- End the story with the superhero enjoying his vegetables… having a second helping too! When the superhero is hungry, he washes his hands, sits at the table and eats his healthy meal with LOTS of veggies (the ones your child refuses to eat).
Remember everything starts in the tummy…when they feel right, they can enjoy growing up happy!
