Chances are you live a stone’s throw away from a Thai restaurant in your neighborhood, and you’ve got a go-to local favorite for pad thai. These days I often find myself traveling north of Berkeley, where there’s quite a few wonderful Thai eateries clustered in Albany, El Cerrito and San Pablo locales.

But don’t lose heart. If your child has decided she hates all things cruciferous, you can trick her into getting excited about eating them. Don’t worry. I’m not suggesting you hide the vegetables (as I am strongly against deceiving kids about food — Santa Claus, however, is a different matter). Rather, I support getting your children interested in eating these amazing vegetables with their eyes wide open, and some of the little darlings will even come to love them. The younger your kids are, the easier your job. So if your kids are a little older, your task will be more difficult, but with a little effort — along with a fair amount of Parmesan cheese and bacon — it’s possible to convince your kids that cruciferous vegetables are not only edible, but quite tasty.
