Like most moms, getting my boys’ to eat vegetables has been an exercise in “futility“. Many a night we have sat at the table in a battle of wills. Recently I had the opportunity to try Green Giant Seasoned Steamers.
I decided not to try and do any fancy recipes to spruce up, cover or hide the fact I was serving vegetables. I mean let’s face it, my boys are 20, 14 & 12, who was I really going to fool anyway, right? I simply told them I received the seasoned steamers for review and would they be willing to try them so I could write an honest review.
Surprisingly that tactic worked really well (I may have to use it again in the future LOL).
The overall consensus were that they really enjoyed eating the seasoned vegetables. We tried the honey roasted sweet corn, which tasted like I had cooked them on the grill. Wow! My youngest son stated if all vegetables tasted like the steamed corn more kids would probably eat all of their vegetables. Hmmm, something to really consider. Seasoning! Is that the key to getting your kids to eat vegetables? If it is, those folks at Green Giant are Geniuses!
I personally don’t like canned vegetables. Like my boys’ I also enjoyed the Green Giant Seasoned Steamers. I liked the fact that they went right from the freezer to the microwave.No cans to open, no pots to clean afterwards. They weren’t soggy or stringy. They were firm and the seasoning was just right. Not overpowering or salty. A definite joy and delight to see my boys enjoying their entire meal, not just the meat and potatoes.
