“We always serve at least one thing we know the kids will eat. Even if that thing is bread or a side of fruit or whatever. Eating begets eating, so often when they eat their ‘safe’ food on the plate, then they’re willing to try the new thing.” — Nick, father of two
It sounds so gross, but I let my kids try new things by dipping them into whatever they want. Broccoli in ketchup? Go for it. Parmesan cheese on top of carrots? Yeah, OK. I’ve watched my 6-year-old dip kiwi in ranch dressing and eat it. Whatever works.
