My son refuses to eat vegetables, but he loves bread. He would eat nothing but bread for breakfast, lunch and dinner, given the chance! So when he was about 5 years old, I thought, “Fine. You like bread? We’ve got zucchini-bread, pumpkin bread, banana bread.” But since there were still no leafy greens in his diet, I took my Grandma’s recipe for Yeast Rolls (which everyone loves), and added chopped spinach. Then, because his favorite color is green, I told him that it was “Green Bread”. I wasn’t about to call it Spinach Bread!
