Nutrition Q & A

My Child Likes Fruit but Won’t Eat Vegetables. Is that Okay?

Each fruit and vegetable offers a unique combination of nutrition. For children who like fruit, be sure to choose a variety of fruits and go easy on fruit juices. Choose fresh, frozen, canned or dried. The same thing goes for vegetables. Try different types of vegetables and vary preparation methods—raw, roasted, steamed or microwaved.  Some tips for getting your children to eat vegetables are:

  • Allow your children to pick out the vegetables for dinner
  • Use cut-up vegetables with dip as a snack
  • Vary the choices to keep it interesting
  • Have kids help wash, peel and slice vegetables if they are old enough.
