A quick and easy fondue recipe, the trick for getting kids to eat vegetables

“It’s incredible,” She says, in her sweet voice with the southern drawl, looking around at the meal she worked on for hours that they hardly consumed. The forks well rested under the plates that are piled with veggies they declined to try.

The exhale that is taken when they take a bite of something new and the anticipation as we look for signs of a successful mission or a dismal fail. The absolute elation we feel when we have added another green to their diet and the struggle we have when they were denied again like a basketball player going up for a sure lay up only to be met at the last second by a defender with a long grasp. We saw victory and it was robbed at the last moment. That was until you learned the secret.
