Transcription: 
My daughter didn't want to eat vegetables. I was shocked because my son ate everything. He's eight and she's four. When I saw people whose kids wouldn't eat vegetables, I would scoff at them, "Ha, your child doesn't eat vegetables, you must not know what you are doing." Then my daughter came along and she wouldn't eat her vegetables. She'd pick every little piece of green out of the food. At first, I was catering to her, then somewhere it hit me, "No, you are developing her palate. Don't allow her to determine her palate at this age." What I did is I made her plate like everybody else's and slowly it was the norm. Slowly, she just tried stuff. We would celebrate when she ate a vegetable. Now she eats everything; kale, collards, spinach, the works.
