We know it's easier and way faster to grocery shop alone. But if you make your kids part of the dinner-picking process (including veggies!) you have a better chance of actually getting them to eat it. Ask them to pick out their favorite veggies at the store and then once you get home, let them help you prep for dinner. (Washing produce is a great preschooler activity; we also love these easy-to-make pita pizzas.) They will take pride in their contribution and hopefully eat their accomplishments!
