Experts Answer "What If" Questions

What if my child refuses to eat any veggies?

As long as she ate fruit along with all the other food groups, she'd still get enough nutrients, says Ann Condon-Meyers, R.D., a pediatric dietitian at Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh. (If your child zips her lips for fruit too, your pediatrician might recommend a multivitamin.) Keep offering different veggies with meals. Who knows? She may eventually try--and even like--them.
