Recipe #2: Easy veggie dip

If at first they don't eat... try, try again!

Broccoli is a certified "Super Food". It contains valuable nutritional content and is certainly a great addition to a healthy diet. Out of our girls, Abby has loved broccoli from the beginning. Elise, on the other hand, has acted positively repulsed each time she sees it on her plate. But it has remained on Elise's plate every single time it has been part of a meal. We have never stopped offering it to her, we have never created the "Elise doesn't like broccoli" stigma. Our doctor said it can take up to 20 offerings of some foods before a child will either consume it or before we can declare it a taste that this individual simply does not care for. Today, after far greater than 20 offerings, Elise ate broccoli. She devoured what was on her plate. She asked for more.
