Teaching kids about nutrition

October 3, 2012
By Cheryl Rude , Marshall Independent

My 5-year-old niece surprised her mom, my sister, the other day by liking cauliflower and requesting it for supper. Cauliflower, and vegetables in general, are usually not what kids consider "favorite foods" and it reminded me of the days when my kids were little and some of the things I tried to get them to do is "eat their vegetables." My other sister, who is also a dietitian, employed the rule of 10 with her kids - they needed to try a new food at least 10 times before they could say for sure that they didn't like it and then they didn't have to put it on their plate.
