Getting kids to beg for vegetables
I know how to get your child to eat her vegetables, and I'm not talking about a couple bites of peas followed by a milk chaser. I'm talking about devouring a whole sweet potato, beet, or bunch of carrots.

The result? Crispy, yummy chips sans butter or oil. Lightly salt and watch the kids dig in. Here's the proof:
