I find that using bacon is a great way to encourage kids to eat their vegetables.

The great part is that you can experiment with any veggies you like!

I mix it up with beans, cauliflower, snow peas, brussels sprouts and sometimes if I have extra time I add ½ an onion and 2 garlic cloves, but this is just for a quick and easy side dish.
