"Learn to Love Veggies" Tip
Caramelizing onions really brings out the sweet flavor of this not so kid-friendly veggie. Have you child lick a raw piece of onion, before caramelizing it, and then have them try one caramelized and ask, "How has the flavor changed?" Really emphasize how awesome it is that a "spicy" onion can be transformed into such a sweet treat!
