How To Teach Kids To Eat Vegetable

Yesterday I cooked green beans (mongo) with pork and coconut milk for our lunch. Actually this is my favorite dish. I just cooked a little just enough for three mouths including my son. I was so full except Janjan. He just ate a little. My son is so picky when it comes to food. He doesn't like any vegetables. His favorite are fried chicken, spaghetti, chicken/pork adobo and french fries. I tried to teach him to eat some vegetable like squash but he will just taste it a little and you can see his face that he is not happy with the food on the table if it is vegetable. But how do you get kids to eat vegetables? I let him see me eating and enjoying the food especially vegetables but he still doesn't like to taste it and most of the time, he can't clean his plate. I wish one day Janjan will eat vegetable.
