I make it a game to serve at least two different vegetables at dinner. It makes the meals more interesting, fills people up and cuts back on the amount of meat family members need to feel satisfied. I try not to have salad count as one of the veggies. If we have salad then it is a triple score dinner.
One day we had the Bittman Sweat Potato salad and stir fried green beans with red pepper pieces. The plates looked beautiful with the vibrant colors. One day it was baked beans and cut up cukes, peppers and radishes.

Make a variation on an old game to tunr it into a Spark Meet up activity. Have Pin the Tail on the Donkey be Pin the veggie on the salad. Or have the Mail game be played by asking "stand up if you had a banana today" For games check this site..http://urbanext.illinois.edu/party/games.html
