Jan 15, 2013 Chocolate Salad Both my wife and I are somewhat health conscience, so we try to eat a salad on a daily basis. And we hope that our son will slowly learn the importance of eating vegetables, and gets use to eating greens. Last night, I made a spinach salad and added a bunch of random veggies. My son watched me munch on some tomatoes, mushrooms and red peppers, and he decided to try what I was having. I gave him a little bit of everything, and to my surprise he seemed to enjoy it. So, I gave him more greens, and shouted out to my wife, "I think he likes spinach!" Afterwards, I come to realize why he didn't spit out his food. He really enjoyed the salad dressing. I drizzled a chocolate balsamic vinaigrette dressing over the salad. The dressing tastes like chocolate, and our son enjoys chocolate. I guess this is one way to get your kids to eat their veggies.
