Dear Health Genie,
I grew up on the Standard America Diet (S.A.D.). Veggies to me meant salad composed mostly of iceberg lettuce or baked potatoes or canned peas. As an adult, I have broadened my horizons and now enjoy a variety of fruits and veggies. In contrast to my own childhood, I am trying to establish healthy eating habits for my kids while they are still young. Getting them to eat a variety of fresh fruits and veggies is important, but a tricky task. Do you have any tips for encouraging kids to eat more produce?
