Jennifer Garner reveals the game she plays with her kids to get them to try new foods

The actress, who is mom to Violet, 13, and Seraphina, 10, and son Samuel, 7, whom she shares with ex-husband Ben Affleck, shared the food game she plays with her kids.

In a video for TheSkimm, Jen revealed the game she created when her kids try a new dish and it’s called Like it, Love it, Want More of it?

Jen, 47, says: “They’ll take a bite and we’ll narrate it like we’re a broadcast announcer.We’ll say, ‘Oh, look, Sam Affleck has the meatball on his fork.

“The fork is going to his mouth. Sam Affleck is … it is in his mouth. He is chewing! He’s chewing, he’s chewing, he’s swallowing!

“You can’t tell what he’s thinking—what is he thinking? And the verdict is … !’” 

However, the Juno star says she won’t allow her kids to express in a bad way if they don’t like a new food.

“And he’ll say ‘Love it,’ because our goal is if you don’t like it, you say ‘Like it’—I’m sorry, it’s lying, but true.

“If you [actually] like it, you say, ‘Love it.’ ‘Wants more of it,’ you want some more of it.

“You’re never supposed to say, ‘Ew, gross.’”

Genius!

Recently, Jen admitted on The Kelly Clarkson Show that she finds the best way to get her kids to try new foods is by acting that it didn’t take you that long to make.

“The harder you work on a meal, the less likely they are to eat it,” she said.

“When you really sweat and you’ve really tried something new, that’s when they’re just like, ‘I’m not hungry, thanks’.

“The trick is to care less. Don’t wear caring on your face.”
