We made sure the boys saw US eat vegetables all the time, and just set the platter on the table, after awhile, they served themselves some without being nagged to "eat it!"....but they were close to 5 yrs. old before they did that. As they grew, they tended to like salad better than anything cooked or steamed. When you think about it, vegetable non eating seems to be the norm for most kids, because, let's face it, the veggies aren't really the best tasting things in the world, unless you add fatty stuff to them. So you learn to compromise.........it's just the way it is. Nagging never worked on anyone, usually gets you the opposite result.
