As a health journalist I'm incredibly aware of the value of green, leafy vegetables in my diet, yet as a parent, I'm extremely aware of the lack of them in my teenage son's diet! But now I have discovered, in Asda's Extra Special range (of all places), young pea shoots. And while my 16 year doesn't think they are the best thing since being free to head into Manchester on his own, he will eat them as part of meal.
I suppose I can't complain or worry too much, he is a big fan of avocado, which is probably one of the best green growing things you can eat. But other than that, green peppers, cabbage, broccoli, rocket, watercress and so on, are all off the menu.
