Tea-time adventures turn many of your family favourite meals into stories. We have recommended recipes, but you can use whatever recipes suit you (with some extra veg). The important part is not the recipe, its the story that makes the recipe an adventure. 

Eat Them to Defeat Them works because it makes veg fun.

Eating healthy food becomes a game to play together rather than a battle to dread. 

The more you play, the more the kids play too. 

Check out the teatime adventures and pick one you like

Watch the mad chef videos together and repeat the catch phrase.

Get your children helping with the food preparation, check out our guide to Kids in the Kitchen

Serve up the food reminding children of the story and using the catch phrases for each meal 

Throw in an “Eat Them to Defeat Them” in your best hero voice

Praise them as they try the vegetables with words like “victory” and “awesome” 

Don’t mention anything “healthy” that will ruin the fun

If you are using our rewards charts and sticker packs then add a sticker after the meal
