My son is 4 years old. I am trying to get him to eat more vegetables but he is refusing to eat them. How can I get him to eat vegetables?

Hello,
Your son is not unusual in not liking his vegetables.  Most children have
difficulties liking new foods and even trying them!

One of the best ways to get children to try (and eventually like veggies)
is to disguise them!  Funny as that sounds, it works.  For example, if your
son like mashed potatoes, try putting some bits of green beans in the
potatoes.  At first, you may have to mash up the green beans quite a bit
and not add too many.  Little by little, you can add more and mash them
less.  If, on first trying this, he balks at the green beans, mash them so
tiny that he can't even notice them.

You can also help him to want to try vegetables by making them into "fun"
foods.  For example, broccoli becomes "little trees."  A tiny bit of butter
for flavor, or even a teensy bit of melted cheese may help.  However, my
boys loved eating the little trees without anything added.  

Corn is usually a food kids will try; mainly because it has a somewhat
sweet flavor.  If your son won't try corn, buy the little half-cobs.  Be
sure to cool them well before offering one to him.  Even my 2-1/2-year-old
boy will eat the little corn on the cob.

I hope these suggestions will help.  If you need more ideas, please let me
know.

Good luck with your son!  I'm sure he will be trying (and hopefully
liking) veggies soon.

Thanks for asking your question here, and please come back again soon.

Children never like veggies but you can let them eat it by slicing the vegetables into small pieces for put it in their favorite meals like spagetti and sweets desserts like pumpkin leche flan. Just be honest with them that a vegetable was mixed in the food.

It's normal for little kids (and sometimes even grown ups!) to dislike their vegetables. But maybe for starters you can try mixing up the really colourful vegetables like carrots and peas with some corn kernels. The more attractive the presentation is, the better chances your son will try them!

Having children who refuse to eat vegetables is very common and very easily solved by sneaking them into smoothies, soups, and pastries. This way they will enjoy the foods that they like eating just with necessary vegetables they need in their diet.

It is very normal for kids not to eat vegetables. I have seen numerous kids do that. What you can do is cook vegetables in the most best way possible. make vegetables tasty and delicious for your kid. You can also mix small pieces of vegetables in other meals that you cook. You can make pasta and add vegetables in it. Children prefer tasty vegetables rather than raw ones. So make it delicious for them by cooking vegetables a little bit so that the vitamins are not burned.

.You can make variations to your recipe. For instance, kids love eating meatballs and you can make homemade meatballs with vegetables such as potatoes, carrots and any leafy vegetables.
