People always remark about what good little eaters my children are. They just consume raw vegetables like crazy. When people see them eating raw peppers like apples they get all red in the face because they want the same for their children. The truth of the matter is, its all about exposure. I was the same way as a child and I still eat tons of fresh vegetables today because my father exposed me to a garden at a very young age. It just happens. You see Dad eat a leaf of kale so you pick one and eat it.
