    How to get children eat sprouts?

    You may try getting them to do it the gradual way, such as cooking them in or with one of their favorite foods. Over time make the sprouts the dominate ingredient, and eventually serve them independently. Or, if the children like salad, try making them one with sprouts in it.

    it depends on if you are trying to make them eat them raw because children should not eat raw bean sprouts they can cause illness in children.

    I'd ask why you felt the need for them to eat sprouts, which have a strong flavour many people don't like. There are plenty of other vegetables to choose from.

      I agree, innerspin.

    I think you either just make them eat them, or you hide them in something.

    I wrote a hub about sprouting-- and told about the process we used in a kindergarten class to show then how seeds sprout, day by day. -- on the 5th day we offered to let them taste the sprouts on crackers with cream cheese.
    A few were hesitant but I don't think anyone declined after they saw how much everyone else liked them.

    Salad is a really great way for it. I generally steam it and then mix it in the salad (like cabbage/onion/tomatos) and just add little lemon juice, little sugar and salt. it tastes great.
