My oldest child will only eat one vegetable: carrots. (It used to be broccoli, but he's switched.) His little brother will only eat corn. Since veggies are good for kids, it would be great if we knew some foolproof way of getting kids to eat them. Science doesn't have solid answers, but it does give us some clues.
