Can your kids spot broccoli from a mile away, no matter how you try to hide it? These creative parents are using a few easy tactics to get their children to eat more vegetables and fruit.

MAKE ANIMALS

Cut the vegetables into shapes and make them look like little characters or animals. You certainly don’t have to be an artist – just have some fun! Your kids are far more likely to eat broccoli in the shape of a poodle or cauliflower that looks like a sheep.

PLATE ART

Let that creative genius come out! Use the vegetable or fruit you want your child to eat, and make fun pictures on their plate. It gets your child excited about food and more likely to eat something when it’s cleverly disguised as something else.

GO SMOOTH

It’s fairly unlikely that your child will enjoy eating spinach on its own, but when it’s blended into a smoothie, they won’t even know it or taste it. A smoothie is a quick and easy way to pack in a lot of nutrition and goodness.
