I agree with most. If a child is taught to eat the veggies from a young age, and don't give in to them...just cause they hear their friends say they hate veggies they will eat them. The norm. seems to be onions and mushrooms for most kids.... but if you teach a child to be a picky eater, they will be. I make make spinach, carrot,squash,add bacon bits and cheese to mashed potatoes frequently for a change. I've gotten more into eating yams now...for the health benefit. Always use lots of color when serving your meals. I had to laugh too, when I read about cutting the potatoes, when it just talked about not doing so. Go figure.
