comment Why don't kids like vegetables?
Another problem is how you cook the stuff. Veg tastes bland or just plain nasty if you don't cook it right. Boiling it half to death makes it taste like nothing, and undercooked green veg can be very bitter. If you cook it wrong, the kids aren't going to like it. Same goes for most foods, really. My fiance's father is in his 40s, and is still an incredibly fussy eater due to his mother being utterly incapable of cooking. She made mashed brussel sprouts once. Need I say more? Grab a cooking book and give a few recipes a go!

comment Why don't kids like vegetables?
Apologies for "necrobumping", but I just wanted to give an example of this. My mother was a childminder (think babysitter for 10+ kids, in our home) and had problems with children whose parents had given into the "s/he doesn't eat vegetables" situation. The kids would flat-out state their disgust of veg (even salad!) they'd never even tried before. The trick was to give them stuff like raw carrot sticks, lettuce, cucumber, etc. and turn making their meal into a game - faces and such. Funny how quick their distaste for veg disappeared.
