Get Kids to Eat Veggies - Ratatouille

Recently I went to a blogger conference where I did a video for Birds Eye Veggies where I was asked How do I get my kids to eat their veggies?

Well for LilMan, getting him to eat his veggies is easy - give him something to dip the veggie in like ketchup, ranch dressing, cheese sauce.  He's my good eater - he loves fruits and veggies, he'll even forgo chocolate for mandarin oranges...



For Em, on the other hand, would rather fill up on milk than eat veggies.  And if you want her to do something she won't do it (that's my girl :) ) so for her I have to get her involved in the cooking and apply some tricks.  She is the reason I made Ratatouille, which has now become a family favorite.

Check out the short video Birds Eye took.  If you like the video please click the "Like" button in YouTube to hopefully give you and I opportunities in the future with some Birds Eye promotions.:)

Here is the recipe for Ratatouille I gathered from Southern Living Magazine (it has been used a lot :) ) and the link to Ratatouille Recipe, so you can easily print it out.

FYI - use a big pot, we have this dish at least 3 days in a row for lunch and dinner.


And after I make it, Ben and I like to add Tony Chachere's Creole Seasoning (it is awesome on EVERYTHING - Ben even puts it on his eggs!)

How do you get your kids to eat their Veggies?
