How can I get my 2-year-old to eat his vegetables?

Hello There! Sometimes toddlers are really finnicky about what they want to eat. Textures, colors and flavors all play a part in their likes and dislikes. Try not to make a big deal about meal time, but instead gently encourage them to sample everything on their plate. You might try having them "help" in meal preparation. Sometimes if they take "ownership" of the food they will be more likely to eat it. Puree it in other foods, or try to mask them in some way to get them to take in the nutrients. Nonethless...don't stress because he will be just fine:)
