Once upon a time there was a little boy who refused to eat his vegetables at lunch and dinner. He would throw his broccoli, carrots and peas on the floor and shout “I don’t wanna!”
His parents tries all different ways to make vegetables fun for their son. They failed time and time again.
One night, after the child blew his top and smashed all his steamed veggies, his parents sent him to his room.
The little boy lay happily in his bed. Another night without any greens. As the night wore on and the bright moon shone, stalks of broccoli, sticks of carrots, and an army of peas came alive. They jumped on top of the boy and pushed him out of bed. He woke up with a start. The head broccoli threatened the boy, whispering, “If you don’t eat us, we’ll take your parents away!”
The next day, when the parents gave the boy his vegetables, he eagerly ate them and asked for more. He never again said, “I don’t wanna.”
