Creating pleasurable meals and snacks for the kids can sometimes be a challenge. For one, they tend to love meat more than vegetables. Also, when at home, they are inclined to finish their school homework first that gathering them to eat together seem impossible. Funny that sometimes, too, they do not want to eat just because the food does not look appealing. Be that as it may, it is still important that children develop a positive attitude toward food. And to make it happen, moms or cooks of the house should make each dish tempting. Again, that becomes our challenge.
Momi Berlin would love to share with you a few proven techniques to make each mealtime a pleasant experience.

Grow vegetables and herbs at home
We started to grow some vegetables and herbs at home. This makes my boys excited to harvest them when I ask them to. We have calamansi for our pancit and even morning juice. We got some bell pepper for our pininyahang manok or chopsuey. We also started growing our own eggplant for our morning tortang talong dish. Growing vegetables at our front yard encourages my boys to appreciate them more. They are also swayed to eat a variety of dish with those produce as ingredients. It thrills them as well to take at least a few bite of squash, for instance, if they helped to plant or harvest them.
