You ever spend a week craving the same thing to eat? I have been eating these sandwiches every day, mostly for breakfast. Here is the real kicker: my son sees me just sitting there chomping away and he is intrigued. He takes shy little shuttling steps over to investigate. I see the interest and so I do the opposite of what my mom self wants to do: No, do not show excitement and say ‘Oh want some veggie burger?!’. Nope, I show no response, not even eye contact and so what happens, he says ‘Mommy, can I have a bite of your sandwich?’ Luckily, I did not get Red Hot sauce in one area and so, he bites, chews, processes and says ‘more!’.
I then make him his own sandwich. After eating it, I let him know that I will make him veggie burgers whenever he wants. He says ‘Okay!’. Lesson: Do not be intimidated and shy away from something you think the kids will hate, not eat, throw etc. Just eat it yourself and see if they have interest.
