Eating chips, fries, burgers, ice cream, or any unhealthy stuff is always easy. They look good and they taste nice even though they are unhealthy. But the first time we served the kids broccoli, they needed some encouragement. It did not look appealing and it did not taste as nice as Crispy Skin Roast Pork.
They were adamant that they did not want to eat the broccoli. We assured them that it was good for their health and it tasted rather nice too. After some encouragement plus some assurance, they finally ate their first broccoli. Since then, they can eat broccoli quite well without much encouragement.
Now, let me ask you one question: “Why do you think they did not want to eat the broccoli?” It did not look good is one thing. It might not taste as nice as an ice cream is another thing. But, you see, if you think deeper, the real reason they did not want to eat the first time is really this: they did not trust us. They did not trust us, the parents, that broccoli is good for their health. They thought we wanted to serve them bad food. They did not believe that we want the best for them. Only after some assurance, they decided to take the leap of faith and ate the broccoli.
