My four year old used to have no problems eating her vegetables but she's suddenly refused to eat them. I'd love suggestions on how to fix them up so she'll enjoy them or they'll interest her enough to try them.

I have heard many things you can do. Such as adding cheese, butter, peanut butter, salad dressing. Ranch dressing seems to be a huge favorite for the kids I know. Also you could try getting her involved in choosing and cooking the veggies. Sometimes a certain color bothers them, especially green. One child I know refused all veggies until we tricked him into eating fried okra and sweet potato chips. Just remember two things; if you make it an issue the child will refuse more and fruits have many of the same nutrients as veggies.

WELL FRIEND FRANKIE IS THE NAME. SERVE THE VEGGIE IN FORM OF FRANKIE OR SUBMARINES AND SEE THE RESULT. YOU COULD EVEN TOP IT ON THE PIES.
