No kid is going to eat food that doesn't look appealing to their likings. Cream of spinach doesn’t look all that good to eat from the eyes of kids. You can make it look good with some food coloring or add a few ingredients kids like to eat. Many kids will eat food that has good ingredients that taste good.

Add a little bit of sauces or spices to the food and see if they like it. If they don't make a new veggie the next time to see what they like. You can easily add salt, some pepper, and other good tasting stuff. When you add more stuff like sugar or even powered cheese, you might want to add very little, because that stuff can be fattening.

There are some veggies that have a bitter taste or a taste that kids wouldn't like. Brussels' sprouts are one of these veggies to avoid. They taste bland and have a bitter taste. They are full of nutrients and vitamins, but this might scare them away from green veggies. Another one to avoid is cauliflower and green peppers.

2. Ranch Dressing

If you use ranch dressing, make sure it’s the good type and not the off brand. They have loads of fat and may contain ingredients not good for children. However, ranch dressing is perfect for carrots, celery, and broccoli. All these different greens make a perfect stable veggie for all kids and adds good taste to them raw or cooked.
