With my little boy still a bit of a veg swerver, I’m always on the look-out for ways to make vegetables just that bit more interesting.
Just recently I’ve been trying to incorporate more vegetables into my children’s diet. I’ve been making sweetcorn fritters with extra red pepper, trying to sneak salad into their sandwiches (they may pick it out but at least it makes me feel better) and, for long car journeys, preparing plastic containers of carrot, celery and cucumber sticks as snacks.
The start of the school term is the signal to step into a world of pencil cases, permission slips, assemblies and reading books.
Wondering how to get your child to eat vegetables? Here are some tips

We all want our children to eat a healthy range of foods so that they have nutritionally-balanced diets. The long-term plan: to help them learn to love good food for life. But right now, today, when you’re always so busy and every day is a tired day, it can sometimes feel like you’re knocking your head against your wall.
I love vegetables, but number 3 child hates them and has done so since he graduated from baby purées.
More often than not, my two and a half year old turns down dinner.
He takes one look at the lovingly prepared – and, I assure you, very tasty – meal, and says, ‘No. Don’t like dinner.’
