What’s it about eating greens that do not evoke happy faces? My kids prefer taking the nearest exit route as soon as they hear the  word greens, rather than enjoy the many nutritive benefits of the leafy vegetable. Reminding them of their favourite cartoon character POPEYE , and the strength he derives from gulping down spinach , I constantly strive to bring a different touch to the greens and in the process make them appreciate the need for healthy eating.
