Hello again Miller-
There is nothing magically good or bad about vegetables (meats, eggs, dairy, fruits, air, water...). They shouldn't be specifically singled out for special treatment (kids can detect a con job) that draws unnecessary attention.
If the preparation is enticing, looks good, smells good and TASTES good, why would a child (or anyone else) fight against it?
With you setting the example of eating just about everything ,why wouldn't they? Sure, some things seem to catch a childs tastebuds faster (think, sugar) but that doesn't then exclude other foods.
In the end, people (kids are people too) will eat what they enjoy. Don't you?
By the way, I (and my wife) raised children who developed a very broad palate very early in life - and enjoy that today. It was a kick to see a 5 year old knocking back artichokes like a pro and showing the teenagers (and older) how it's done.
