Conversation Starters to Inspire Healthy Eating

March 24, 2022

Would you believe us if we said that getting your kiddos to try new foods doesn’t have to be a struggle? In our latest blog, Nationally Board Certified Health Coach and Dinnerbell partner, Michelle DeWolf, shares amazingly simple advice to get so-called “picky eaters” to be more adventurous, leading to happier, healthier meals. 

As another way to make healthy eating more fun, we present our newest set of conversation starters. What are conversation starters? We’re so glad you asked! We round up jokes, trivia, and open-ended questions to spark more lively and meaningful family dinner conversation. This week’s topics are all about healthy foods and nutrition. Instead of the typical, “How was your day?” that inevitably ends in a one-word answer, keep reading. 


  • What do you call a table you can eat? (A vegetable) 
  • What is green and goes to camp? (A brussels scout)
  • What vegetable do chickens grow? (Eggplant) 
  • Why shouldn't you tell secrets in a vegetable patch? (Potatoes have eyes, the beans-talk and the corn have ears) 


  • What condiment was once sold as a medicine as it was thought to be a cure for indigestion? (Ketchup) 
  • What color bell pepper has the most Vitamin C? (Red bell peppers) 
  • What vegetable also produces flowers? (Broccoli) 


  • What is one food that you’ve always wanted to try?
  • What is your favorite vegetable and why?

We hope these conversation starters help you and your family connect during these busy times, and maybe even keep everyone gathered around the table a little longer.
