You may offer them a glass of milk-shake after food instead of plain milk. And if you feel giving a candy is not a bad idea, you can also offer a candy.
And traditional way in India is to get them busy in some story while they are eating, especially if you are helping your children to eat and they are not eating themselves.
I’ve had no trouble getting my 2 yr old to eat any fruits and vegetables. My best advice is to eat any (if not all) possible fruits and vegetables during pregnancy. What we eat during pregnancy reflects what our children will eat. If you try giving your child a vegetable and then candy as “good-job” Your child will choose what tastes good vs. what is good for you. Besides, if you give your child a serving of vegetables and a cup of any store bought juice, chances are you’ve already given your child enough sugar for him to decide that he wants juice instead of water. Try explaining to your child that vegetables are what make their super heroes strong. If your child likes ranch or ketchup, try it on their veggies. Give him/her a cup with half juice and half cold water or just add lots of ice to their juice (they won’t even notice the difference) .
I put them in smoothies, like carrots, broccoli, squash, put in the blender and make a great tasting smoothie. I do this twice a week for my son. Works so well. Make sure you blend them, add sugar or splenda and anything else.
Ok I wrote a hub on this one so maybe check that out. Don't add sugar and crap to it thats just dumb. What kind of vegetables are you using? Are they fresh or frozen? How do you cook them? Do you steam or boil them?
I found with all seven of my kids that if you steam fresh vegetables they are more likely to eat them (four out of seven were troublesome at the dinner table.)
If youaren't winning there try cooking things like spaghetti bolognese, lasagne, quiches and stir fries. With those just dice the vegetables up into very small pieces and cook away. If none of that works then, I would say you have a behavioural issue (by that I mean they just don't want to and would rather argue with you about it) Take a look at my hub http://hubpages.com/hub/help-my-child-wont-eat
That might give you some good ideas
Dont give up and good luck
here's what you do: pick up a really scrawny guy in a bar, take him home, entice him into the bedroom and let him undress, then you get the kids, point at him and say:"see, that's what you'll look like if you don't eat your vegatables!"
just kidding, don't actually do this
it is very simple. If you can make vegetable tasty, then they can be eaten by kids. for example, You can make fruit and vegetable chat. You can make Yogurt and add some vegetables in it. You can give incentives to your kids like money, chocolate etc.
Mixed the vegetables with others nutrition food that kids love to eat. For example, slice and mixed vegetables with apple, banana, etc.
Eat your vegatables, you are not getting up from the table until you do! There is no creative way or game that should be played to have your children understand what is good for them. In time you wont even have to tell them because instinctively their bodies will crave what it needs.
