Introduce vegetables onto a reluctant veggie eater's menu with these five fun games

Carrots
How many different ways can you carry a carrot? Hold it under your arm. Balance it on your shoulder. Tuck it under your chin. Carry it between your knees. Pretend to be a horse or donkey and carry it in your mouth.

Tomatoes
Cut open a tomato and scoop out the seeds and juice into a bowl. Paint your lips with the juice. Demonstrate how shiny and beautiful your lips look with tomato juice on them.

Brussel Sprouts
Sit down with your child and show them how you can peel off the outer layers of leaves. See how far they can peel them and count how many you pull off. Make it a fun activity by seeing if a piece will stick to their nose, cheek or chin.

Kiwi Fruit
Make it fun to eat. Put it in an egg cup and slice the top off to eat it like a boiled egg.

Bananas
Hide some bananas around the room and go hunting for them. Perhaps pretend to be hungry monkeys looking for food or elephants with long trunks searching out a tasty treat.
