Seriously, the trick is chopsticks. My kids will eat anything we put in front of them if they can eat it with chopsticks. Tonight my husband made this stir fry out of some asian eggplant, some pork (usually it's tofu), some bell peppers and some onion. It's not a favorite of our kids. One doesn't like tofu, one doesn't like onions, one doesn't like pork, none of them like eggplant. But all of their plates were clean tonight! DH fed the baby with his chopsticks, and I gave the girls the pair of kids chopsticks that we lifted from a popular chinese restaurant that we'll call "O.E. Fangs". ;) Try it, it works!
