It's how you cook it. The Chinese can make any vegetable tastes good.

Huh... yeah, I remember being a kid - snorting pixie dust. Eating a pound of chocolate in one go if my parents weren't looking. A farking sugar cube was delicious.

Now I can't eat a donut without getting heartburn. Vegetables are my friends and carrots - CARROTS - are one of the sweeter things I eat. A spoonful of sugar would taste more like burning.

I make up for it with hot sauce, rare meat, and things like mushrooms and eggplant, that I NEVER would eat as a kid.

Tastes change.

Brussels sprouts are great, they're natures perfect little butter delivery devices.  Slice them in half, coat with oil and bake for about 30 minutes at 350F.  After that through them in a pan with butter and a little garlic.  Cook over med-low heat for 5-10 minutes.  They should be soft, but not mushy and should absorb most of the butter.  It's also delicious with olive oil instead of butter if you want to mix it up.

I don't get the whole "kids won't eat veggies" thing. If you get them eating veggies from the day they're on solids you won't have problems. The only parents I know who have problems are lazy as fark and too busy to actually make an effort feeding their kids decent food. I know one family, their kid will ONLY eat raw pasta with tomato sauce - and they ALLOW it.. "Oh, no matter what we do he won't anything else..". WTF.

Here's an idea, send him to bed without dinner once or twice, i bet his attitude changes..

Seriously parents, if you want your kids to eat vegetables cook them well. It wasn't until college did I eat most vegetables because I childhood experience with broccoli and such was being forced to eat them from frozen packages that were nuked into bitter, rubbery husks. Mixing them with other ingredients is a good idea too.

Yes, I believe it's called salad dressing.
