This is one of my biggest dilemmas as a mom. I was a very picky eater (ask my mom and dad) and it has stayed with me all my life. Its not necessary the taste its the texture. Slimy spinach...ewwww gross! I know your laughing but I deal with this everyday! I am not the best cook either so to try to cook with veggies has always been a struggle. I eat salads....always love raw veggies more than cooked. Being a mom who doesn't like veggies is probably a kids dream but its not my DREAM. With that said I have never said to my kids "don't eat that...ewww gross" but I haven't out right told them "eat your veggies" either. We eat veggies every night but its either corn, green beans, peas (but I don't have them on my plate) or a salad. When my hubby cooks he throws in veggies and I wish I could cook like him but I would have to try the food and I'm not going to eat that slimy stuff! When will I grow up LOL!
My kids are big salad eaters so I'm not totally being a bad mom!
