My mom was lucky. I always loved fresh vegetables. No fight to get me to eat my veggies. We had a garden and I got to grow my favorites, too.

My daughter could be conned into eating celery or raw carrots with a blob of peanut butter nearby.

Along came the grandkids and it was 50/50 on eating fresh veggies. My granddaughter loves cooked veggies but I think years of braces took its toll on eating raw, crisp vegetables. Even corn on the cob was a challenge.

My little guy loves raw veggies. A few years back they had a nice sized garden. Mac would be out there every day picking cherry tomatoes, green beans and zucchini.

So its was never a lack of veggies in their diets but maybe a bit of boredom.

Sweet treats chocked full of veggies is an alternative to get some extra veggies in all our diets.

First thing that comes to mind is Zucchini Brownies.

Maybe Chocolate Zucchini Cakeis more your thing.

Both of those are great if you have zucchini overload this summer! In the meantime, try these Sweet Potato Muffins with a smear of vegetable cream cheese.

Food for Thought…Kids love to be included in meal time preparation. What ways do you use to include your kids or grandkids in adding veggies to the meal. Do they help with selection? Maybe making the salad is a fun contribution. Snapping beans or shucking corn can be fun for little fingers! I’d love to hear your thoughts in a comment below!
