Tricks to get kids to eat.

What tricks did your parents do or you do to your kids to get them to eat anything?

My Dad would sit next to me at the dinner table and just as we sat down he and I would arm wrestle and he always won. Then I would quickly eat my vegetables (brussel sprouts, broccoli, green beans) then we would arm wrestle again and I would win. This trick worked for a long time. But even after all that I love brussel sprouts, broccoli, cauliflower, most vegetables. I guess it wasn't all bad.
