How NOT to get a child to eat their veggies

Cast: A grandmother and her 5 year old grandson.
Scene One: The dinner table

Grandma: Carrots are good for you. They help you see better.
Grandson: [quietly eats his carrots]

Scene Two: Later that evening, in the bedroom.

Grandson: [presenting the back cover of a Berenstain Bears Book showing a lot of tiny pictures of the covers of other books in the series] Grandma, can you read to me what books are on here? Grandma: I'm sorry, I can't read the writing. It's so small, I can't even see it properly.
Grandson: Well, what if we fixed you some carrots to eat so that you can see better?
