Winning The War With Picky Eaters

(NBC News) Getting children to eat their vegetables has always been a battle, but dietitians insist that this battle is well worth the trouble.

Starting a healthy diet from an early age has been proven to provide life-long benefits for growing children, and experts say that it is possible to get your kids to enjoy dinnertime.

A good way to balance what a kid likes with what a parent wants them to like is simply to compromise, say many experts.

"Kids love to dip things, so even if it's eating a raw vegetable dipped in something, it's a good way to get them to eat it, and that's absolutely okay," said Wendy Palmer, a Registered Dietitian for Children's Healthcare of Atlanta.

Also, Palmer recommends trying to blend healthier foods into some of their favorites, ultimately creating a better diet for your child.
