Subversive Vegetable Propoganda (Veggie Adventure Blog Tour)

Now I don't know about most mom's but I have had the misfortune of trying to get a child to eat vegetables. Making veggies into shapes, sneaking veggies into snacks....etc. It is quite time consuming. I have noticed that if my child sees something on the television or the computer she automatically wants it! So thanks to the folks at Hidden Valley Ranch, I have a new way to subliminally push vegetables! Yay me. Visit to play games.

First you grow your vegetables. You have to shoot water at the insects in order for them to leave the veggies alone. You can't use too much water or you will run out. The next game requires you to drive your veggies to the kids in time for their snack. Did I mention you do that with a tractor? I am a country girl so that was right up my alley. You have to drive and not hit bumps in the road or animals. If you don't, guess what? you lose veggies, and you have to do it in a certain amount of time. This is so cool. Unfortunately, I have yet to get past the driving test in time. Next stop the kitchen.

The games are fun and I would highly recommend allowing your child to play them with you. It puts vegetables in a positive light.

In addition, the loveyourveggies site does offer some printable activities as well. Try this site out on your finicky vegetable eaters.
