Kids and veggies
Bribery works for this mom when she needs her kids to eat their vegetables.
My kids are un-fond of vegetables. Mostly, I bribe them with a treat after supper if they eat what I serve them, veggies included.

But I've heard of clever tricks for disguising vegetables in the foods that kids love. I once saw an episode of Oprah in which Billy Joel's wife revealed that she put mashed up broccoli in things like chocolate brownies to get her kids to eat veggies.

I'm not sure I'm ready to go that far yet - Threats and bribes seem to work fairly well for now! ;-P
