If they're hungry, they'll eat. Before dinner, serve an appetizer of colorful vegetables, such as carrots, cucumbers, and red bell peppers, along with a hummus or low-fat salad dressing.

Tell your child he has to take a bite before vetoing something on his plate. As long as your kids are tasting the food, they'll eventually get comfortable with it.

Make up fun names. Marketers do this, so why shouldn't you? Once a friend started calling Brussels sprouts "hero buttons," her kids couldn't get enough of them.

Shop with your kids. Let them pick out the fruits and vegetables. Let them smell the produce and admire the colors.

Cook with your kids. Kids love making things. Let them add seasonings to the veggies as they're steaming. There's a good chance they'll eat their veggies as long as they help prepare them.

What kid doesn't love gadgets? Let them use a blender, juicer, and food processor to make smoothies and other recipes with fruits and vegetables. Use proper supervision, of course.

Bribe them with dessert. Didn't want to finish what was good for them? No problem -- no dessert, Maybe not the healthiest way to get them to eat vegetables, but it works.
