Three Year Olds and Vegetables?

Caleb wanted to help me make dinner tonight.
I gave him a butter knife and let him cut up some peppers.

Suddenly I hear crunching.  I look over and see him munching away.
He told me he liked them.


Then I remembered this pepper incident-- it occurred a few months ago.  I got home from work, Doug was making dinner, Caleb was in his high chair... munching away on a red pepper.  Not just a piece.  An ENTIRE red pepper.  He was eating it like an apple.

I was dumbfounded.  He ate half of it.

Apparently I shouldn't be so concerned about his vegetable consumption.

Wow! I've been trying to get my son to eat peppers but he claims he just can't and spits them out due to the "skin". Thankfully he eats carrots and corn and peas.
