#Repetition - A Reminder to Keep Offering to Your Children

This post is about encouragement. If you're a parent whose child(ren) do not eat fruits and veggies, don't lose hope. 

Let me ask you this first though. Do you eat plenty of fruits and vegetables daily? If you don't, maybe that's why your children don't. However, if you do and you find they aren't eating any or enough this is where the encouragement I want to offer to you kicks in. 

Keep offering and eating your fruits and vegetables every day. Eat a variety too! 

For a quick, healthy dinner, I like to make a veggie burger over brown rice and a side of additional veggies - usually carrots, broccoli and cauliflower. (I personally can't get enough veggies!) I've made this and eaten this with my family a dozen times over. My son always eats the brown rice, broccoli and carrots without a fuss. Tonight my son picked up a piece of the veggie burger (I cut it up in small pieces and toss it with the brown rice) and asked me, "eat it?" I said yes, of course. He puts it in his mouth and he's mmm mmm the whole time he's chewing. He asks me for more! I'm excited on the inside. I don't make a big deal of it because that may give him a negative view of eating later.
