My kid has *never* eaten a carrot. If I tried, she would gag to the point of making herself vomit.
Today I made a batch of the Carrot Bisque from VWAV and she ate 4 full spoonfuls (NO gagging!) and even admitted it was 'yummy'.
Now she's all proud of herself and keeps checking in the mirror to make sure her eyes are sparkly.
We got some kale that was not only chewed but also swallowed. It was crisped in the oven, that helped.
