Why is it that kids will happily gorge themselves on ice cream, candy, or gooey-cheesy things but turn their little button noses up at salads, lentils or other nutritious-from-the-garden-foods? I know the scientific and biological reasons, as well as understanding that some parents are in a perpetual survival mode with their kids when it comes to their diets. But as a self-proclaimed foodie, I want to expose my little one to all the flavors the world has to offer. Bit by bit, of course.

Thankfully, she doesn't eat candy and still thinks cottage cheese is a variation of yogurt. When comparing her diet to other little people of the same age group, she does eat a pretty well-rounded menu. But some days it's definitely an up-hill battle. So I've had to create some table-side tricks in order for her to eat carrots ("Again, Mommy?" her eyes plead) and other veggies.

Check out my tricks of the trade at my blog, http://yinyangmommy.wordpress.com. And please, if you have any tips or ideas to add, let me know! Remember, the older they get, the smarter they get!

Great ideas, Rosemary! As my little one gets older, I'd love for her to be more involved in the cooking and menu planning. Right now she's pretty good at putting raisins in her oatmeal ;)

The eternal battle of the table :) The very best method I learned, was to get the kiddos, even really young tikes, involved in the shopping, preparing and serving. It seems there is more interest when they have something invested in the whole process. And then again, there's always the vitamin supplements.
