Yes, honesty is the best policy, but sometimes it can be difficult to convince children to eat things like carrots, spinach, flax seeds and such. Sometimes it is easy to be a little sneaky with your child at first. So, if your child doesn’t like a particular vegetable, nut, or seed try blending it up into marinara sauce and pouring it over pasta, or try sneaking it into a smoothie. Most of the time they won’t even know the difference. You can always confess after the fact and your child will see that certain foods aren't as bad as they once thought.
