You can try making these: http://www.today.com/food/recipes-get-your-kids-gobble-good-you-greens-t24066 (replace kale with spinach and you will get spinach chips) http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/ina-garten/parmesan-roasted-broccoli-recipe.html These are easy to make, healthy and delicious even to the children. They are crunchy and many children won’t even know that they are eating vegetables! Also, once they get used to the "snack" version of these, they may find it easier to have the same vegetables in their regular meals. Another one you can try is making mashed cauliflower. Simply replace potato with cauliflower and you will get another type of vegetable in disguise. Have fun experimenting!

Other family members should be eating the same.

Parents should be a good example to them. You should show them that you are eating the veggies and make it look so yummy. Slowly let them try. It will not be immediate it will take time. Let them try first to veggies with nice taste or tasteless. Start by mixing it with the food they love even just small pieces. Then slowly increase the size until they can eat it. You can try to reward them once they eat their veggies

Let them grow their own veggies. Then include them in the preparation pag nagluluto ka na.
