1 Picky Eaters, Ranch Dressing & A Cause for Kids

As a child, I was a picky eater.  Hmmmm....I'm still a picky eater, but nowhere near what I was as a child.  When I was younger, my diet consisted of Cheerios, Jelly sandwiches (no peanut butter), and whatever I could pick out of dinner that night.  Fruit and veggies made it to my plate, but never to my mouth.

My mom desperately tried to get me to eat a variety of veggies.  She succeeded with corn (off the cob), and buttered carrots, but peas and any other green veggie simply stayed on my plate.  I remember looking at a single iceberg lettuce leaf and thinking, "people eat leaves??"  I took a bite and all I could remember was that it was bland and bitter.

I sprinkled a little bit of salt on it and took another bite.  Okay, that's a little bit better.  I ate my lettuce leaves this way until I discovered .....

Oh, I had never tasted anything so good!  Score one for my mom!  Score another point for Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing!

Next, I was able to try this:

Raw carrots with Ranch Dressing!

I give credit to this dressing as the one ingredient that has helped me eat more veggies and can help your kids eat healthier, too!

  1. My kids don't like any condiments, with the exception of my 17-yo, who will eat catsup...only. No mayo, mustard, Miracle Whip, or Ranch dressing. Strange children!
