At a recent dim sum lunch here in Hong Kong, my 2 year old son, to my surprise and delight, reached for the plate of garlicky spinach. So far, his dim sum proclivities had included all sorts of delicious steamed dumplings but he always eyed the green veggies with suspicion. I hadn't pushed the matter much thinking he would grow into his greens in time. Nevertheless, I was elated and watched proudly as he proceeded to stuff a forkful into his mouth. Sadly, the fibrous nature of the vegetable quickly broke the 'yay my toddler is finally eating greens that are not hidden in a soup or pesto' spell - a choking fit and lots of water followed ending with with "NO MORE SALAD NO MORE SALAD"! We were back at square one on our path to conquering leafy green vegetables.
