As a rule, my kids would rather have broccoli roasted than any other way. They usually aren’t big fans of eating it raw.

I bet they’ll like it more than you think. I have a saying that if you don’t like a healthy food its because you haven’t tried it the WAY you like it yet. Preparing foods in many different ways helps you discover the one that you absolutely LOVE! Variety is the spice of life!

  1. Such cute photos…sounds like a great tasting salad! I love getting my kids involved with cooking and you are so right about them happily trying their creations…except pesto…for some reason, they will happily help me make it, but refuse to eat it! I think I must have the only kids in the world who don’t like pesto!! Thanks for sharing 🙂
