Parenthood has a definite learning curve, and that curve seems to start over with each new milestone. That first year, however, is a real doozy. Just when you think you’ve got things figured out, your little love muffin gives you another unexpected challenge to overcome. Take mealtime, for example, it’s almost as if kids are preprogrammed to dislike anything that’s green. But a balanced diet is important, right down to those green veggies.

Unfortunately, most of us didn’t give birth to adorable little veggie lovers, so we asked Scary Mommies to tell us how they get their babies to love veggies, and this is what you told us.
