My son won’t eat his vegetables. I know what you are thinking, “welcome to the club.” But seriously, he won’t eat his vegetables. I show him a plate of spinach, and literally, he runs away screaming. I ask him, “Don’t you want to grow up big and strong?” He responds, “No.”
He does eat fruit, and we give him a vitamin, but I’m worried. The pediatrician says, just don’t feed him and he will eventually break down. But wow, he’s only two. I don’t think he has that cause and effect thing figured out yet.
We tried Jessica Seinfeld’s book where you hide the vegetables. Jen and I love the macaroni and cheese. Little guy, wouldn’t touch a bite.
So I was wondering…what do you guys do? Do you beg? Do you cry? Do you just let them starve? Any tips would be greatly appreciated.
PS – he is really a good boy. I feel like I have been chronicling his misdeeds lately. Two is fun, but boy is it different from one. He just has so many opinions now.
