THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS "I DO NOT LIKE VEGETABLES"

There is no such thing as "I don't like vegetables"

😋😋😋 I never understood how some people say they do not like fish when they do come in so many varieties, colours, shapes, textures and tastes. It is a bit like saying "I do not like vegetables" when an aubergine bears no resemblance whatsoever to a carrot or a broccoli.

For some reason, we are all far less categorical when it comes to sweet treats. No one ever says they do not like biscuits if they happen not to appreciate ginger oatcakes, but can't resist one of our Pick Me Up Cookies.
When it comes to chocolate, we all have our preferences. For instance, I tend to totally dislike flavoured chocolate (you'll never get me near them, be it with strawberry, orange or worse, mint!), but would I ever say a definitive "I do not like chocolate" and reject the whole category. Absolutely no way! And I know very few people who would.

So maybe that gives us a clue as to how we could handle our children claiming "I do not like vegetables" or "I do not like fish". Let them name a few they like (because there is always at least one) and immediately reject that restrictive claim. You could also give them a whole list of vegetables and let them choose every week five that they will eat and five that they will not eat, and you stick with those "likeable" five for that week. They must change every week and pick some new ones, with one or two as staples to make your life easier. You might be surprised how suddenly their minds open to trying new ones, as long as they can choose.

From our kitchen to your table, our nutrient-dense, balanced and delicious meals are delivered every week.

Let our kitchen do the work!

Just sit down and share. 😋😋😋
