This is one of my family and food related Christian Science Monitor articles. The children in the article are grown and are parents, uncles, and an aunt now. But the idea remains good.

In my role as mother and chef, it is my job to push vegetables. And in my capacity as family Chief Financial Officer, it is my job to push cheap and local vegetables. But when it comes to zucchini, one can only push so hard.
It comes down to this: My children will eat zucchini under duress, but they like it to have body and texture. A friend puts it in salad raw, and they find that acceptable.
