We used to play a game at the Mom’s Group I attended when my kids were babies called “I’ll never win mother-of-the-year because…” and we’d share all our hilarious parenting failures, just to make ourselves feel better and like we weren’t alone in the crazy journey of parenting. It was such a funny game and while I won’t share all my personal parenting failures here on the blog – and believe me there have been a few doozies, like the time I accidentally took my 3-year-old outside for a walk without her shoes on in November (insert face-palm emoji here)…she’s fine, by the way – I will say that one of my parenting successes has certainly been getting my kids to not only EAT their vegetables, but to LIKE them too.
That’s right, you read that correctly. My kids LIKE vegetables. In fact, they even LOVE them at times, depending on the current phase they’re in and depending, of course, on the vegetable in question. But I have to say I feel a rush of relief every time my kids argue with me about finishing the rice or potatoes left over on their plates after they’ve already devoured their vegetables. Eating their veggies is almost NEVER a fight and it is so, so sweet. It’s truly a parenting miracle, let me tell you, and its importance isn’t lost on me. Now if I could only figure out how to get them to clean up their toys…

I won’t get into all the reasons I think my kids are growing up to love vegetables (although if you’d like more information about my food philosophy with kids I’d be happy to share it – drop me a comment down below!!), but I will say that keeping it interesting when it comes to veggies certainly helps. That’s why side dishes like this Garlic Parmesan Roasted Broccoli is one of our favourites. Why settle for boring old steamed broccoli when you can roast it?!? With garlic! AND cheese!!! In 15 minutes or less!!
