Malt vinegar as vegetable "dip"
Kids surprise you in their food preferences. My kids (aka Finicky 1 and Finicky 2) reject entire categories of food, and yet will eat almost anything from a Chinese, Japanese or Thai restaurant (something about soy sauce). For that reason, it's worth opening your mind to various condiments and dips that may not immediately scream "kid friendly." Case in point: Cindy's story:
My 3 year old had always eaten her veggies with gusto. Then a few months ago she started getting a little picky. The solution? Malt vinegar. We do ranch dressing sometimes too to mix things up. But she loooooooves malt vinegar on cooked broccoli, cauliflower and green beans. I didn't realize that this might be a hack until tonight when my one year old, who has never been a big veggie fan, was throwing a fit wanting to eat the same thing as her older sister. At first I was hesitant. But she loved it. This might be evidence that my kids are mutants more than a hack. But if your kid likes pickles, it might be worth a try.
