Rather than turning our supper table into a battle ground, I would simply "hide" the unwanted vegetables.
I buy frozen mixed vegetables, put 1-2 cups in the blender, add 2-3 tbls. of water and blend to create a gray-green, smooth, semi liquid substance which can be mixed with mashed potatoes, gravy, meatloaf, tator tot hotdish, soups, salads, etc.
I always made at least one vegetable for every supper and offered them to my children (who are now great vegetable eaters), but it wasn’t a forced process, they ate them, or they didn’t. I always knew they were getting their 5 a day with out fighting about it.
