I have an August fruit problem. It seems that no matter how much I buy, I can never get around to whipping up all of the things I plan on making. Instead, we just eat it all fresh. I think, "I'll just buy double," and then we eat double the amount of fresh fruit. And forget it when I'm dealing with fruit that we've picked ourselves!

There's so much talk these days about how to get kids to eat vegetables, but not a whole lot about how to get them to love veggies. (You know, eventually.) This whole teaching kids to eat healthy thing is not just about getting nutrients down the gullet. After all, we could do that with supplements and protein shakes. It's really about fostering a love of healthy food that will sustain them over the course of their lives. And, sometimes, it's easier to do that while away from the pressures of meal time. Watch my latest video to get my three favorite tips for how to inspire veggie love. They are foolproof: there's no way any of these will end in tears over green beans. I promise.
