Short and Sweet: Vegetables

Why I need to teach my children more about basic nutrition in 100 or fewer words: 

We're driving to soccer practice and Reese is telling Brooke all about school lunches.  "They make you take a vegetable every time that you buy a lunch.  Every time!"

Brooke reflects on this for a moment before weighing in.  "That's okay.  There are only three vegetables that I don't like."

"Which ones?" I ask.

Without flinching she reports back to me, sounding mildly amazed that I don't already have this knowledge tucked away in my memory.

"Celery, stuffing, and grass."

Come to think of it, I don't like those vegetables much, either.
